    Try contacting your local Catalina Owners Group. Some have tools for borrowing among the members.

    Maybe the Sailboat owners forum store here might consider stocking one for rent.

    Not too hard to make something that would work.
    My brother in law made this in his machine shop.
    Has lots of uses for me, including pulling the prop, pressing out the strut bearing, pressing the coupling off the shaft, etc.

    I rented a fantastic tool last winter from Ken@WeekendRProducts
    I believe the tool rental was $50, plus he wanted you to buy the cutless bearing from him, $50, plus insurance and round trip shipping ($50). Well worth every penny!!!
    This is a job that you do not want to go south on you mid stream. The tool is very robust and functional. I have zero regrets using him. Very easy transaction. The only problem is that this time of year there will most likely be a waiting list. E-mail him at the address I posted and see.
