Although i wouldn't recommend it, I've heard of people diving under the boat and putting plumber's putty or a wax seal temprarily around the shaft while doing such repairs in the water, but have never seen it first hand. I need to replace the hose on mine, but I'm going to wait until I haul for bottom paint later this year to do the swap. Personally, I would be very worried making this repair in the water and don't recomend it.
