Congratulations and welcome to the forum. Look forward to many years of happy boating.
You don't have to remove the bottom paint unless you wish to do so. It will wear off in time and then you could have the bottom painted if you wish. Most likely not a DIY project unless one is so inclined and skilled. When we lived on Cape Cod I decided not to repaint since the boat went back in the first of March. It slowly wore off and there was no problem with barnacles, thus it was never painted going forward.
