Such a great looking boat, very hard to believe it to be home built. Very nice work!

Lowering the pitch will give you better performance throughout. If you are only turning 5200 at full throttle the engine is working too hard to turn the prop. You'll get a better hole shot and probably match or exceed your current top speed with the extra rpm's at the top as the Yamaha 4 strokes don't hit their rated hp until 5800 according to my dealer.
