If you pull it every season and lube the shaft, I think it comes out fine. If like mine, I'm sure the PO never pulled it. I had to use a puller to get it out. Now that I've had it out and replaced, it comes out much easier. I also have the above puller. Got it for $35 somewhere on line.

I used silicone spray and loosened the pump brackets to wiggle it back and forth. Came out no problem.

I have a very small pair of channel locks and was able to get it out a little. Then I sprayed with wd-40 and bumped the starter. Tried again to pull out and no luck. Bumped the sarter again, and still no luck. Probably spent 30-45 minutes total to get it out.
Replied before seeing this. Try needle nose vise grips. That was what one of the guys from the old MCOC recommended to me, along with the WD40.

It's really easy to replace except on the X2. Dumb design with very little clearance between the housing and the muffler box.

Yea, I'm reading about everyone here saying it's easy. Trust me it's not easy, or it would've come out. Sure, I could destroy the impeller and get it out but the whole point was to pull it out for the winter. I think I'll just order a puller. I plan on keeping a Mastercraft boat for the rest of my life anyway!

If you can pull it out and destroy it, do it. You want to replace it anyway IMO. Order 2 impellers, scrap the puller, and change it again next year.

For my '04 205V it's the up to 2.5" puller.
