I don't see anti-freeze being caustic, quite the opposite actually, I think you'll be fine. If your boat is painted then you've got bigger problems to worry about.

I can't see getting water or antifreeze on the outside/finished surface of the hull when winterizing except for what comes out of the exhaust? Oh, and no, antifreeze will not harm your gelcoat. Like others said, if your boat is painted, keep some touch up paint handy as your in for a lot of keep up.
