Three Blade Prop

I am sailing a 30 ft sefarer with a 2gm10 diesel. While motoring out of the creek and the channel to the river/bay I have motor at about 1500 rpm I make about three knots, I know that the hull is clean because under sail it is moving right along at six knots which is probably the best I''ll get with a full keel boat would a three blade prop help me go a bit faster while motoring ,and will the 10hp support a three blade prop. It''s getting inbarrassing being passed by jellyfish thanks in advance for your input.
