Best way to remove a bit of marine growth?

Any ideas? Anodes might need changing too

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...

Reminds me of the Benetau 32 yacht a friend of ours had. He'd been assured by the previous owner that it had been antifouled just before he bought it.
Took 3 of us two days to clear off all the marine life that had attached itself.
The prop looked like a mophead - which explained why he was finding low speed manouvering difficult
