I have a bronze Columbia but would entertain others.

Prop Puller

You can rent or buy a control arm bushing puller from Advance Auto Parts. Be sure it has an open Y shape at the end. Its a C clamp style puller. I pulled the prop on my sailboat and it worked great. You buy it for $149, and as long as you return it within 3-4 days, you get all your money back.

A Tip
Any tool you use under water, you should be sure to tie a long/strong string or rope to it.

Any chance you know a Navy SEAL? They used to blow destroyer props with about three wraps of det cord. Maybe one would do ya.

Maybe it was a ball peen hammer. I canít remember exactly, but it definitely involved the tiger torch.

It's good up to 1 5/8" shaft and is similar to this picture and was priced around $70. It's beat up and needs the threads cleaned up.
Thank you!! I just contacted them to see how I can buy it and get it to DE.
