Rusty propeller shaft bracket

Oh wise Sailnet community,
I attached a photo of what's holding my propeller shaft bracket. As you can see the bolts holding my propeller shaft bracket do not look as amazing as they should. The stern port bold is heavily corroded and is leaking just a tiny bit. I need to fix this.

1)Do I need to pull the boat out to make this repair?

2)What is the best way to pull out these heavily corroded nuts?

3)Any other tips on how I should tackle this?

The p bracket is probably bronze but the bolts certainly were not. I would suggest a haulout is the only way to fix it properly.
