Do it all the time. I always pull the impeller if I'm going to be anchored in one spot for more than a day or two. Don't get more than a cup of water in the boat. Soak it up with a sponge. In most boats the impeller is only 18" or so below the water line so there's not a great head on the water coming in. I have a rag ready, pull the impeller at the same time covering the hole, uncover the hole and put the plug in. Some of the newer instrument thruhulls have a flap that stops water coming in.
Toronto in summer, Bahamas in winter.
