Default Bravo 3 prop recommendation?

Just purchased a new to me Monterey 238ss with a 350mag and bravo 3. The current props are Mercury bravo 3, 4x3 26p that turned 5000 rpm with me and 1 other person in the boat. The water temp was 44 and the air temp was 58. The previous owner has got the prop in sand and pea gravel that roughed up the tips.

I’m going to have the props reworked, balanced and checked. The cost of this process is 3-400, which got me to thinking should I rework these props or purchase a new set? I’m a little concerned that the boat only turned 5k with 2 people and the cooler water/air temp. The boat wot rpm range is 48-5200. Should I rework the current props, or put that money towards a new set of 24p 4x3 or 4x4 props? Is there any benefit to the 4x4 or the 4x3?
