Power tool for sanding toe rail

I need to re-varnish the wood trim on the outside of the boat. The toe-rail is only about 2 by 2 and so it isn't very easy to power sand it with standard orbital sanders or even a finishing sander. Can anyone suggest a power tool (and appropriate attachment) that might work effectively here? The job would be to remove any black staining, old peeling varnish and to smooth any surfaces that are already bare.
Last time, I used hand scrapers and sandpaper and I'm hoping someone can suggest an easier way.
Ross
