Cheers guys, so the consensus is gentle heat followed by a lot of grease pumping.

Apart finding dried grease inside swivel brack, expect to find lots of salt layers/crusts inside both bushings. In that case will need to remove entire swivel bracket, clean well all related sliding parts and fully lube swivel's bracket interior with a proper water grease. Lay down engine on floor and remove bracket.

happy Boating

Don't go crazy with the heat; I think there are various rubber sealing things in there that you probably don't want to melt.
