My understanding is that she should turn up to 2600.

True if you wish to cruise at or near 2600RPM.

Sounds like a knowledgable owner installed a cruising prop on your boat , and the results are good.

Why would you want to re prop to gain 300 or 500 RPM at cruise at the same speed and burn more fuel?

Simply install a RED line at 1650 and do not cruise over that RPM.

If you are a "belt and suspenders" guy install an EGT gauge (about $120) and cruise efficiently as few other trawlers do.
