A 5 blade may not get you any more top speed, but I'm sure it will increase your cruise. 30% is quite high, and 5 blades usually do a great job at lowering that number.

The 28 Panteras really don't start to free up the hull until you get above 50mph. Slip goes down with increased speed an more chop on the water. 30% is high, but you have a pretty unique set up.
