I own and use a 2700 PSI gas unit and have used it for many years on deck and on the hull above the water line. I use the wider tip (40 degree I believe).
If held approx 8 to 12 inches above the surface it does an outstanding job and I've never caused any new leaks or harmed anything in any way that I'm aware of.
I did this job this past Saturday and unfortunately the boat won't look this good again for the rest of the year.  :clap

For most deck washing I use a "sweeper nozzle" and a shut off end.  Just dropped mine and had to buy another and thought of this discussion.  I take off the nozzle when rinsing that's when it jumped overboard.  Like plastic for the boat because I'm clumsy and tend to drop things.  Most places that sell garden hose have them.
