My ski boat came a bit over propped brand new from the factory and it was not a new model boat or new model engine. Switched to a prop with slightly less pitch
and picked up about 700 rpm, 8-9 mph on the top end and out of the hole faster.
But don't loose a lot of sleep over this. Like I said, your engine is not going to explode in the near future but I would definitely put this on the list of things to figure out.
