Clean/Polish Painted Hull before Applying Graphics?

I ordered the new graphics for our boat. The name should fit on the side of the hull and leave room between the "dock rash" and the aft end of the boat so any new paint can be feathered in. I'd love to "just" re-paint the hull and not have to worry about the dock rash, but with everything else that's going on, that's not really an option. So, what kind of prep work do I need to do to the area where the new graphics will be applied?

I've read MainSail's thread about polishing gelcoat, but it says that it won't work for painted hulls.

Any feedback is appreciated!
