Hey tbird!  Welcome on.

I think I run a 22pitch but my speed is about what you've observed at just les than 5K rpm, WOT.  I have the same 260 horse unit.

Our hulls are capable of lots of speed but they're heavy.  If you look through (way back) in the Formula thread I started a couple of years ago, you'll see where a few people were hoping for & probably achieving 60mph through some serious massaging & engine replacing.

They might be able to be contacted still.
