My son had the same issue with the same set as you have. He got with Cajun Christian and put a hook in the bottom of his boat and it solved the problem.

Not stating it will fix your problem, just letting you know what worked for him.

The Yamaha prop is a semi cleaver with 4 degrees rake. Rake gives you bow lift. Try a PowerTech SRD, it has 20 degrees rake. That will help to raise the bow when loaded using rake. The Yamaha is a 10 3/8 inch diameter prop, the SRD is an 11.25" diameter. The SRD will run about 1.5" higher on the boat than the Yamaha. The added blade area of the SRD helps the prop carry a load very well. I sold all 3 of my Yamaha props and bought 2 new SRD's. I run a lower pitch in the marsh and 1" more pitch in the river. I need the hole shot in the marsh, in the river....not so much. I tested the SRD on several different boats with that 4 stroke 40/50. In every instance, it out performed the Yamaha prop on hole shot, and top end.

That's easy, the weldbilt is an 80 gauge hull where most others are 100 gauge. I have had a couple 1548 weldbilts and a couple 1552 weldbilts. The 1548 weighs 300 pounds. My Ambush weighs 420 pounds. The advantage of that is that I won't be changing boats again soon. EVERY weldbilt I owned broke welds. The extra weight of the 100 gauge on an Ambush is offset by the hull design, that's why they are called "high performance" hulls, because they are.
Here's a short video of my Ambush maiden voyage. I ran out of propeller, it was on the rev limiter the whole time. This is a hull with me, tank, and battery.

The black Yamaha is the best prop I've run on my 50 Mercury 2 stroke. Added a little cup and it has terrific holeshot and fast top end. I was thinking of trying the bigger diameter semi cleaver "SCA" but now you guys have my attention with the SRD.

That is not usable data. Only answer I can give to your question is "no clue". Anyone that can answer your question with that data BEWARE!

That said, I know for a fact a stock 40hp merc on an 1842 tunnel will not turn a 15 pitch prop efficiently.

Stock 50 Mercury 2 stroke on 18x50 1/8 welded flat runs 39 with lightly cupped black Yamaha prop at 5600 rpms. Not looking for a rocket ship, its a fishing/hunting rig and I doubt I can do much better than that on a heavy boat. The prop game can get expensive chasing a minimal gain in mph.
