Shaft removal on a Beneteau 461

I managed to find a length of 2" tow rope in the river the other day and it seems my prop shaft suffered a bit of a bend.
Has anyone here taken out the prop shaft on a 461?
I assume the worst of it will be dropping the rudder.
Looking for any tricks you might use the second time you had to do it
