With advise/instructions from fstbttm and some others here, I changed my prop under water, not once but twice with ease. The key tool is a 3ft length of 2x4 to wedge between the prop, P-bracket and shaft (do not use the engine gear to hold the prop), large hammer, 1_1/4" spanner(for prop nut) and 2- or 3- pronge cheapo bearing extractor(with suitable spanner). Tie everything with cord else it goes to davis jones' locker. You have to use scuba for the job.
