Default Prop Hub Replacement question

My boat (2003 1900 SR@) is in the water and the trailer is many miles away. Has anyone replaced a prop hub while boat is still in the water or is in manditory to do it on shore. With trim all the way up, the prop bolt is only 6 inches below water and easily acccessable. Is there any harm to doing it this lazy way or do I need to go retrieve the trailer and pull boat out? also, anyone know of the proper depth sounder gauge to replace original? I found a Faria one that looks similar, but it says its for Cobalt boats --

many thanks,
Mike W (new member)

Welcome aboard!

No issues with changing the prop with the boat in the water just be sure to apply some marine grease to the splines of the new prop.

That's why they make floating prop nut wrenches. Get organized and don't drop anything.
