Bottom paint on aluminum hull

Just had this discussion w/ my slip neighbor. My hull, and the rest of the boat, is all aluminum. Why do I need bottom paint? Wouldn't a short haul and pressure wash about every year to 18 months work? Lots cheaper than bottom painting.
P.S: Good luck to all of you who are staring at the beast Joaquin.
