I'm doing exactly the same job on Querida at Kip marina where I'm installing a 12hp Kubota marine diesel. If you can remove the shaft from the boat then just heat the prop up and it should pull off relatively easily. However to do that you would need to remove the rudder to get the shaft out. I wouldn't recommend using heat on a bronze shaft in the boat as the shaft will quickly heat up and may put your boat at risk. I have also tried to pull off/knock off the prop with no joy as the metal is too soft but from what I can see it looks a fairly easy job to just cut a groove along the length of the boss by carefully hacksawing or grinding. I don't need the prop & it's soft metal so it looks pretty simple. If you do it then just cut until you have a couple of mm above the taper then gently split the boss from end on. It may even take a groove on either side. I have had to adopt this method to remove many bushes off motor shafts shafts etc and as long as your careful it shouldn't let you down It's a lot quicker and safer than using heat.
