For the most part "yes".

If the boat is gel-coat, because gel-coat is more porous than marine specialty paints it will be easier to remove a coating of gel-coat than off paint.

Just wash careful.

If you do have to remove or if you want to remove it and re-apply then the Captain's Compound will do the trick.
