Mercury Outboard 4HP - Recommend Replacement Prop?

Hi All,

I don't know much about outboards and need your help. I have a 21' Venture sailboat w/ a 4HP mercury outboard (2 stroke). I am looking to get more thrust out of the current engine while motoring in/out. The motor was recently tuned and water impeller/seals replaced. Is there a prop size and/or configuration that will yield a higher thrust? What pitch angle is best? Three or four blades?
Thanks for your help!
