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.

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 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.
