Welcome to the forums. From what I know it's a two-person job to remove & reinstall the drive, and requires a special tool to remove the pins that hold the drive. While you're at it you should also replace the bellows.

I don't mean this to be a cop-out, but this is a question that may be more expertly answered on our boating-specific forum: The Hull Truth.
