Don't know about your boats dry weight.

Try using merc's prop calculator as it will allow to request hole shot performance. Going to SS will help as well as it does not flex as much however if you hit the bottom as you did the energy is transfer into the gears and may result in damage.

Ouch, that prop is horrible lookin. On the flip side, your spouse more than makes up for it.

Question: when you ran the boat at WOT, what was the load in the boat and what was the max RPM? With a light-ish load the engine should spin up to somewhere between 4400-4800 with the correct prop. The reason I ask is because it may already be over propped with the one you have. Well, have most of anyway. LOL Over propping a little may improve the hole shot at the expense of top speed.

At WOT it was only my wife and I on board with a half tank of fuel running at about 4,000 rpms. I think I need something with a little less pitch.
