More on prop replacement
 
I am definitely going to be getting a new prop. Does anyone know how extensive a job this is to replace? I am thinking of having my diver who cleans the bottom do the switch, but not if it is going to be a difficult job. If so, then I will wait until I have the boat hauled out.

Most of the time not a bad job.Depends on room issue,would make sure he has a wheel puller.Good luck.marc

If the diver is experienced at that kind of work it should be easy.
Have a long-handled wrench handy so the diver can get enough leverage to free the prop nuts. When my diver replaced my prop the 18" pipe wrench I had on hand made his job easier.

If you had air you could do it yourself

If the diver is experienced, he will have the neccessary tools. In any event, it is not a particularly difficult job and there is no reason to haul the boat to change out a prop.

My wife says I am full of hot air.

I don't do much myself besides varnish.
