You need a Spanner Wrench. (Groco Wrench Spanner/Deck Plate GRO-SW2531). Try West Marine or E-Bay. About $15-20. Capt. George

Thanks!! LOL I have one, found it in the chart locker, I thought it was some sort of compass/chart dividers!!! I assume I will see the holes where you place this, and said holes are on top of the strainer.

You will easily see how to use the wrench. You may want to shut off the water suppy to the strainer before opening the cap.

Do you have to close thru-hulls before opening and inspecting strainers?

YES! Definitely. Unless you want to rinse out the inside of your engine room. The strainers are below the waterline. Open them up and you just open at least a 2" hole in the bottom of your boat.
