The freshwater flush isn't really a problem. Many engines go far longer without a freshwater flush.
As for whether you need antifouling paint for your trip, a week might be too long...but you might be able to get away with it if you scrub the bottom while its in the water. It is really dependent on the temperature, the rapidity of the growth, etc...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
