Correct me if I'm wrong anyone I'm shooting from the hip.

googled 5 hp pusher prop and got this in a couple seconds.
Boat Propellers, Stainless Steel Boat Props - Discount Propeller
The smallest prop they sell on that site is 9.25" it wouldn't work with the 2-6hp motors. Its really hard to find alternate propellers for small outboards. They do make an a factory alternate one for my Honda motor, but its hard to find a place to purchase it or any account of someone who has used it to see if it will make a difference.

I noticed that the smallest was 9.25'' on that site. I'll get in touch with Lehr and see if they have anything.

I bought my motor from Denver Boat Shop - Boat Repairs and Tohatsu Parts and Accessorries and they sold me a flatter prop at the same time. I think 9 deg stock changed down to 8, still 3 blade. Not sure if a 4 blade would work even better or not. They might be able to help order exactly what you need. It's a wooden front door with repairs in the outbuilding kind of place, but they seem to know their stuff. I know how to pull the starter cord, but not all that much more beyond what I can Google.

Most prop shops can change the existing pitch of most Aluminum or Stainless props. Just get a stock one and get it changed to the desired pitch.

I've used Jim's Prop Shop in Denver for my 115.
