Oh, and the props that I've had on my last two boats were fixed bladed with a tapered hole that his held on the tapered shaft by a single nut and cotter pin. It might take a two jawed pulled to pop it off the shaft after the nut is loosened. If you're going to take the prop off, don't take the retaining nut all the way off until you pop the prop with the puller. They tend to jump off when they pop and your diver buddy with have his hands full just holding on to the puller and the wrench.
