Default Honda 75hp prop question

I recently purchased a Honda bf 75 motor. It had been on a 22' commercial fishing boat. I put it on a 17' aluminium side consul fishing boat. It has a 13.25 x 17 3 blade prop on it. I only get 5000 rpm at WOT. Any suggestions on a different prop to raise my WOT (5-6000 is suggested). I do not know the speed I get from this prop.

Your going to have to get a lower pitch prop like a 15 pitch. Your motor also maybe mounted to low causing extra drag. First thing I would do is check motor height.
