Prop advice

27ft rib with 300 Suzuki- current prop 15 1/4x 22p

On my own Iím hitting 6300rpm @48knts and sometime hitting the limiter with a bit of trim, is it worth getting a higher pitch prop or should I look at having the one I have altered to a higher pitch or adding cup?
Ideally want a bit more too speed, recommended wot range is 5800-6200rpm for the engine

RIBase
If it was me I would go up a pitch or two and keep the current prop for towing toys or skiers

Cheapest option is to have some extra cupping added if you have dealers who do it there. You could send solas props a message and ask them. Ive had extra cupping added by solas here in Oz, they certainly know their stuff.
