Your boat will probably come with the 13.5X17.5 prop, going from that to an ACME 537 would probably do you good with your description. Plus you should be able to pick one of those up from members here for cheap. I can't imagine you needing anything more than that with a HH on a VTX and being moderately weighted.

Tone,

Mine came with the ACME 817 4blade (13.5x17.5).

I saw that you were looking for more top end. I haven't verified with GPS but I have had it WOT between 48 - 52 mph. Conditions weren't ideal when I opened it up so that is why I think the speed seemed to bounce a bit. Best of luck with changing the oil. My dealer is a 3 hr drive away so I did it myself and it is a challenge with the oil cooler, shower lines, ballast lines, water intake all in the way of the filter.

We need to stay in touch seing that we may be the only 2 on the forum with HHs in the VTX.
