I can't imagine why anyone would willingly go through all it takes to pull hoses out--remove hose clamps, warm the hose to get it off the fittings, drag 'em through the boat to the dock to beat them, and then do it all again in reverse to put them back!
There's a product called Sew Clean Sew Clean ® | TRAC Ecological
that will clean them out when used according to directions.
However, if your hoses are at least 10 years old , it's time to replace them. 10 years is the average working life of any hose--water, fuel, sanitation, exhaust--because the rubber or plastic (flex PVC) dries out over time. The hoses become hard and brittle and start to crack, leading to hose failure that can sink a boat if the thru-hull is open.
