Highly recommend the fishing floats! I can verify that it is possible to wrap the prop with floating poly line.
All you need to do is put it away when not in use. I wrapped my prop with nylon and floats after my wife backed down on the anchor. I use a float with the poly. You are much more unlikely to wrap the prop, but I guess everybody has a preference.
