Bottom Paint needed?

The boat I currently have (34' Seafarer) was in storage for several years when I got it. The bottom is bare (as in no paint) and there are no blemishes/blisters visable. I plan on putting it in the water (fresh) the end of July and pulling it the end of October.
My question is - do I need to apply bottom paint prior to splashing her?
What are the problems I may encounter if I don't paint it?
