2003 honda bf40

I have a 2001 smoker craft 16 foot stinger,it came with a 50 hp yamaha . I wanted a 4 stroke and this honda came my way so I bought it .I really like this engine, runs great,smooth,quiet ect. I would like to get up on plane faster. It currently has a 11 3/8 "diameter and a 12 pitch 3 blade prop. I have heard a 4 blade prop with around 10.25 diameter and 11 pitch would give better hole shot.Their is no tach. so i cant tell you the wot rpm.I just fish with this boat and don't care about speed, it currently does about 25 mph wide open.Also does this engine have a warning buzzer if you over rev it?

Thanks Mark
