Tune the engine or change the prop?
Once again, I am consulting the vast knowledge of the RIB.net gurus!
I have a 3.6m Tornado with a 25hp Mariner marathon 2-stroke on the back. It will give me about 23kn on a flat day, fully loaded with 3 on board. It sometimes takes a while to plane, and I have to move all the crew to the front to get it on the plane at times.
Most of the time, I am cruising but I sometimes pull an inflatable or wakeboarder.
I'm wondering whether to tune up the engine or change the prop. I guess I'd need one prop for cruising and one for towing, though I may be wrong!

Thanks guys and girls!
A RIB is for life, not just for Christmas.
