Prop Size Bahama 30

Anyone have the size (12 x ?? LH) for a two bladed prop on a 1978 Islander Bahama 30 with the original Volvo MD7A 13hp diesel engine? Mine had an oversized three bladed prop when I got it. I replaced it with a Campbell Sailor two bladed but I'm not happy with the lack of speed under power (maybe 5 knots on a flat surface). I've had this prop re-pitched a number of time but can't come up with a happy medium, too much cativation when it gets pitched too much. I'm thinking of going back to the standard two blade but don't have the pitch.
