If it is only surface damage then it is UV degradation of the resin that is used to bind the glass fibers and besides of the discomfort no structural integrity is compromoised. You idea about looking at boat varnish is knocking on the right door, a marine supply store should be able to supply you with resin to restore the surface. Make sure that it DOES contain UV retardant of some sort. (You would hate to keep re-aplying suntan loation onto your ladder , which is what UV retardants basically are...)
