Be careful with your 6'000 psi sprayer. Fiberglass can seem solid but if you hit a blister or delamination spot it's easier for the water jet to cut through. You may not be able to get absolutely everything off as fiberglass can be porous or have tiny pits in it's surface that hold crud.

I've only left the bottom bare on boats that get pulled out of the water daily. Anything that spends extended periods in the water I paint the bottom. The paint protects the bottom and when it's cleaning time the paint layer provides a good base layer to blast down to.
