Dear Bill,
I have replaced   the propeller twice using only a snorkel, I tied myself close to the boat ,so i did not move away. I used the weight of the diving equipmet to keep myself steady and also had a plastic  buked to leave all the bits and pieces at hand.
All the best

Yesterday I did something stupid and lost the bow thruster propeller, or at least I think that's what happened when a line got entangled with the propeller.

My question is to someone who has had to replace a propeller while in the water:

Would you dive and do it assuming you have the dive equipment, or would you use the special tool, assuming this will be your first time with the special tool?
