So as a next step, I am having a Mercruiser tech coming in a couple weeks to read out the computers errors or sensor indicators. This might help narrowing in on my boat issues.

I had trouble slowing down on top end.
I found a check valve off the gas tank, to engine.
Removed semi rusted ball in check valve and now runs good.
Simple fix, if needed.

The anti siphon valve, can cause fuel starvation when bad.

The RPM's only are restricted on return trips, never on the trip going out.

Has anyone tried using a four blade prop to improve getting on a plane?

Yes and I posted about it here. Improved hole shot and speed to plane but lower top speed. Cruising rpm much better. About 3400 at 23 knots.
