There is a general formula but I forget it
Something like an extra inch of pitch will lose 200RPM and gain a knot? That kinda thing - lol. In empirical testing, I've found it to be not so hard and fast. With your rig it's not going to matter so much. First move is to find out how much you are overrevving (against recommended WOT revs) and then the route will probably be fairly obvious. Steel Developments in the UK are a handy source of props, but more importantly, can rebuild and tweek your existing unit if required for modest bucks.
My Granny was a Wiksfjord woman BTW. I'll not hold that against you
