I have a newport 17' with a '79 100 hp johnson at wot I am turning 5200 rpm. I have no reliable speed numbers but a guess is 40 mph. I would like to get to plane a little quicker without harming top end too much is this possible? Thanks in advance.

Sorry the prop that on now has HHM1444 stamped on it and the operating range of the motor is 4500-5500 rpm the av plate is about 1.25" above the keel

you are close so I would leave it alone. You are probably swinging a 17" prop. Have it made into a 16" would be your cheapest route because a 15" would be too small.
