I would look to keep a 14 pitch but a larger diameter.

EXTRA NOTES: Just bought the boat as a new leftover and haven't had her in the water yet myself; dealer water tested it before delivery .  Curious how the prop will do; it was installed by the dealer.  It seems a bit pitchy for this engine.

Diameter is on the short side, so it might not be too bad. I am curious to see your results...  Main thing is to make sure your RPMs stay high enough per Yamaha specs.  You are right to be concerned with the high pitch though...  You don't want to lug a new motor!
