I think it should be cleaned up, not for esthetic reasons, but to see if there is an issue with the metal. If it has started to leach out zinc, it will turn a pinkish shade. You can't tell unless you clean it up. Granted it would be more likely to happen under the water line, but it may well have been sitting in a wet bilge, perhaps with a wire in the water leaking current into it.
