Best prop for ring 20 with Mercury 200 optimax

Hi. First post. Picked up a Ring 20 with a 200hp mercury optimax. Only used a couple of times. Was out this Saturday for a first real test. Noticed it was only achieving 5000 rpm wot. I have read that it should be around 5.5k-5.75k rpm. I'm running a laser 2 23p prop which came with the boat. Just wondered if anyone had any advice thay could pass on with regards to props etc. Many thanks Shane

I had a Ring 20 with a 2.5 mercury with a 21” laser and would pull 5800 so I’d suggest going down on what you have to a 21”
