In a honesty, I'm wondering if the boat may be operating above its horsepower rating. I'm not sure what the recommended max is for the. 4.7, it may be the hull is just a touch short for the power. If there is no chine walking with the 18, that may be as much as you can do, other than gamble on a 19. But if the chinewalking begins at 19, you may have wasted your money. After all you are only losing a knot or two but gaining good handling with the 18, and as you have found out, propping is always trial and error.
