Prop recommendation ?

I just got my new Sweetwater Premium 220 SL with TOTAL tri toon package and have been on the water 4 days and love it !  Since I am unfamiliar with the waters in my area, I was considering swapping out my SS prop that came with the boat for an Aluminum prop just in case I were to hit something.  My SS prop. that came with the boat is  a 3 blade,  Mercury Marine Vengeance 48 16312 15P.  First of all, is this the recommended prop for this boat ?  Can you make a suggestion for a variation of this one in an Alum.  and what the results might be with a variation of a 4 blade or a different size 3 blade ?  A fair amount of the time, we will be pulling tubes and  wakeboard with 6 people aboard. 

The top speed with my current SS prop is about 38 mph max with 1 person on board at 5800 RPM but at 3800 RPM,  I am only doing 20 or so.

    Thanks for the feedback. I found a great prop shop in Muncie Indiana called Delaware Prop. He was very helpful and recommended a 4 blade ss so I worked out a trade. Now I can't wait to get it installed and back in the water

    Have been using the 4 blade SS prop and I suppose it did handle a little better but speed reduced by about 6 MPH and reduced by about 400 RPM as well.  Going to try a Mercury Enertia Prop next.  Delaware Prop has been great about sending me props to try and return until I get just the right one.  I assume I am taxing his patience by now though !  Will go back on the hunt next spring.
