To all that helped and all that wanted to know,

I finally had a chance to try some different props on my Dauntless 14. Moving down from a 13 pitch to 12 pitch was what indeed did the trick. Planing with two people on board is much improved.

I tried a Michigan Wheel 10-5/8 by 12 three blade aluminum and an 12 pitch Mercury Vengance SS prop. Surprisingly the Michigan Wheel prop was slightly better.

So it looks like I "dialed in" what I need. Once I get some other thing taken care of for the boat I will take Larry's (LHG) suggestion and get a Trophy Sport prop.

Thanks for all of the help and suggestions.

I also have some props left over; ones that I had left over form other boats. I will post them in the market place area soon. I need to jot down the speciifcs.
