Zenith 601 XL canopy opened during the flight

Has anyone had the canopy of 601 XL open during the flight ??

My canopy opened in flight at 1500' at 100 kts early this month (May 2013). The aircraft dived towards the land and was hard to control. The canopy stayed up in the air and I could not pull it down. I slowed down to 60 kts and droped down to 500' just in case I had to land on the beach. All the items got sucked out from the back including my head phones. I turned back to the airport, about 2 miles. I  could not communicate…

Popeller pitch and size

What is the best propeller to put on ch701 with jabiru 2200 engine ??? What should the rev-counter read at full throttle when taking off and climbing ??? I can only get to 2600 rpm maximum throttle which I think is not enough. Any information will be appreciated.
