You should be able to have the prop rehubbed for the stinger. Run the prop you have, see what you think of it. See where your rpm and top speed are at, how it handles, how it carries the boat, then make prop changes from there.

Good advise above.

You may be able to fit your prop to the OMC with washers, etc., for testing. (maybe not)

My motor is a different size, but I obtained a custom thrust washer that allows me to run OMC props on the Merc.
