This sounds like an interesting option to me and apparently there was no damage done to your gel coat. I like the fact that you avoided using harsh chemicals. You also checked your boats bottom for loose putty and voids in this process whether you realize it, since 5000 PSI can take anything off that is not well attached and can open up voids near the surface! I had the bottom of my boat checked with an ultrasound during the initial surgery looking for voids, delaminations etc. and non were found. That would not be the case on many non Amel hulls. It seems that Amel does a very good job with their laminations in getting out all of the air, especially at the critical gel coat interface. Really glad that this worked out for you.
