Simple answer, take the props off the boat and see if it makes a significant difference. As already mentioned, the forward tank fuel is more likely the problem.

Both of my boats have a spare prop. This was the result of a significant pitch change. In a pinch the spare would work until the other could be repaired.

I guess my view is different than many.
With a single a feel much better w a spare aboard. I was able to pick up an identical used prop from a previous MS 34T owner at a bargain $250. I did pay about twice that for a rebuild & balance but with shipping I now have a perfect replacement about a boat buck less than a new one would cost and then I'd have rush shipping if in a bind on a trip.
I figure at half the price of a new one...I can always get my $ back when I sell the boat...either from new owner or private sale. And I have the peace of mind while I own the boat.
Keep an eye on eBay, Craigslist and forums and you can find some bargains.
