On the hard

My boat is hauled out now for a bottom paint.
It appears my diver has been doing a pretty fair job.
I am going to do a little extra work on cleaning prop and strut.
I don’t know if I have anywhere near my boat where I can plug in a power tool with a wire wheel attachment.
I will see when I go back to the yard tomorrow.
Any suggestions on what/how to clean?
Thanks.

Thanks for your input.
I’m thinking about non powered options.

Blair - I clean out the two strainers on my boat before painting. They build up paint and critters and can plug up.  I run a small stiff bottle brush up any straight through hulls too. Good time to lube your seacocks!
A good rechargeable drill with a couple of batteries and a wire wheel - worth their weight in gold for the prop and shaft.

I tried a wire brush, and it didn't do much.
I ended up just taking a razor blade to it.
Thanks for everyone's input.
