Checking cutlass , P hanger and folding prop underwater

Hello

When I got here today the boys said in the last 10 hours they started to hear a small konck while running the engine.

The cutlass bearing was inspected 100 hours ago when the boat was hauled out in July

I am going to go over the side today and check for play in the cutlass. I assume the same should be true for checking the p hanger/ just wiggle and see if you have movement?

Anything to check on a flolding prop? I figured I would open and close it by hand to see if there was any binding?

Suggestions
