Changing prop underwater

I've just ordered a new Campbell Sailor prop and is thinking of doing the swap underwater (with scuba gear of course). I've thought through the work processes and tools needed (bag to hold clotter pin, spanners, 2-claw bearing-puller, hammer, shaft-key ...).
Any advise from those experience in this ? e.g. should I engage into gear to lock the shaft when doing the swap? ..can hammer the old prop hub to free it? will the new prop go in freely or require some effort? should the prop shaft hole be grease? etc...
