As other here have stated, Max Props can be removed and reinstalled while the boat is in the water. I have done this myself many dozens of times. However, it is probably not a job you want to trust to just any hull
cleaner. I recommend you contact PYI in Seattle
. They can refer you to a qualified diver in your area who has the tools and experience to do the job correctly, in the water.
BTW- there are no off-the-shelf 2-piece ring zincs available for your Volvo saildrives.
