Prop Advice please

Making 45 Knots (2 way average) in the Solent in slight swell and some chop, revs 5150-5350.Using a Laser 21P on Opti 150. We never pull any toys. Any advice on something to add a few Kn to the top end?

Thanks

Bruce

My 150 opti says 5250 - 5750 rpm.

So I reckon Bruce you're spot on with that 21"
