great shot here nate, unique angle again. i have only seen the spare prop in such positions on a few fednav vessels. though most ubc's have these in the same spot. good question though, and thanks for the answer guys

Hi There. Changing the propeller is very seldom done. But would normally be done in dry dock. I once saw a picture of a large ro/ro where they changed the propeller by pumping ballast (at extremes) in the front section tanks and by emptying tanks in rear sections.
Must be a hell of a jobb.

Nate:It is funny to see the whole prop up there normally you only see one blade.And I would say.....I,ve seen it done once in Hamilton Ontario where they have to shift balast to the extreme forward as far as I know I could very well be wrong so don,t quote me on this.I saw it done on the Atlantic Erie owned by Canada Steamship Lines.A dock heavey crane was brought in to do the job.Here prop is in a court nozzel so it may be different here in this case.Maybe some one else has a little more info.But that is what I can tell you from seeing it done to a different type ship all together.
