I think you are underestimating your abilities, there isn't really a correct amount to remove from the tongue, differnet uses require different amounts, You could tackle this and be out on your boat with it in a couple hours.
The blades don't have to be "micrometer" meaured for size, just eyed.
Here's how I do it...
-remove the amount of tongue you need too
-then get some platercine or modeling clay and make an impression of that blade.
-next work the other blade a bit at a time until it fits the first blades impression
-then balance the prop to find the lightest side
-start to thin the tongue edge to a knife edge
-next start to do the same with the second blade, while checking the balance until they match.
voila....a detongued sharpened blade...
now you ca start to polish as I explaned earlier.

check out this video on youtube , this explains it

Just remember that octura makes their props in stock form to work for any application
Once you detongue, it will be more efficient at high speeds , but it may cavatate at low speeds too..just someting to think about...
If you are still unsure about doing it...put it in bubble wrap envelope with a return envelope inside(prepaid postage)and send it to me and I can do it for you and send it back. I don't want to sell any of mine as they are all slightly cupped to different pitches and I use them all...
