Noticed your question yesterday, but as I'm no prop person, I let it pass for other more experienced people to chime in on. But I see that today you still havent gotten any response - hate to see that.

I would suggest you call Mark Sholund (his website is props4u.com) and he should be able to help you - he does many, many propr every year (sells/sharpens/balances them) and is a really nice guy. [8D]

you may want to try an X437/3 or a 440/2.

you will have to shim the 440/2 however to fit on the 1/8 shaft.

I don't know what's on there right now but the Aquacraft site says this:

UL-1 Superior L40x57/3 AQUB9760

That would make it close to an Octura 440/3. If the above prop is what you have you could move up to an X-640 for more pitch or if you want to try a lifting prop, a 1440 or 1640.

Ron,
he has the 36x55 which is the equivalent to the 535.
