Propeller removal

Postby deising » Thu Mar 02, 2017 12:38 pm

I am a DIY guy as much as I can safely get away with. Is there any trick to removing the propellers on our MV 34 while in the water?

Thanks!

Thanks, Island Time. If I decide to use a diver, I will likely use one in my own town, but I appreciate the referral.

I've found using a large plastic tub with a string tied to the corner makes a handy floating tool tray. Handier than a dinghy.
