Not sure what max RPM you are seeing but that engine has a 2.14:1 gear ratio. I plugged those into the Merc calculator.

45mph at 6000(max rpm per Honda) 18” prop yields 6% slip
43mph at 6000 18” prop yields 10% slip

Your loaded slip number would get you to 48mph with a 20” prop (provided you get 6000 RPM)
Your solo slip number would get you to 50mph with a 20” prop at 6000 RPM

Theoretical max for a 19” is 50mph and 20” is 53mp

Gonna be tough to get 50 out of that combo I suspect.
