What model number is your motor?

 

What model and size prop?  The rpm is too low.

E150DSL IS ,Envinrude E-Etec 150hp.  The prop is stainless steel Power Tech ELE3R19PMS 275, 19 INCH PITCH AND I BELIEVE TOO BE 15 DIA.

Re: The right prop for an ETEC 150hp

My boat is similar in specs to yours: 19' long and 1850lbs dry weight.  I have a 2017 G1 150ho motor and run the Viper 16" prop.  I can get 5800 rpms and max speed around 46mph (gps-measured).

 

As BWB said, your RPMs are too low.  You need to gain about 600 rpms which translates to 3" change in pitch down.  So going from a 19" to 16" should help.

We can only advise on Evinrude products.  Work with your dealer to try a 17" or 16" propeller for testing.
