I've the Pro 9 man with a 50 on the back. Use it for diving and family trips with the odd rescue cover thrown in.

Never been out in anything too big but for the type of boating we use her for she's just great - you'll love yours

Not meaning to hijack the thread but I have a Pro 470 that is currently being fitted with a 60 hp 4 stroke and was wondering what prop to use. Just wondering what others are using.

Office888, thanks for the lead, but I can't find a similar boat on there.

I was hoping someone on here with a similar combination could let me know what they have in terms of prop.

The 60hp comes with a 15 inch Stilleto prop and I am thinking that should be close.

Office888, you are the master of search. Thank you very much.

Looks like I need a new prop.

Not meaning to hijack the thread also but I had a Zodaic Pro9 and it was fantastic until someone stole the engine, anyway I still have the front bow cushion available for it if anyone wants to buy it?

I do need a front bow cushion but I am guessing the freight will cost more than the cushion as I am in Australia.

Do you remember what prop you had and what engine?

Ive got a 550 pro tour and believe the hulls are now quite different from the earlier ones. Mine is a 2014 model which handles well above its weight, Ive been out 3m+ swells and always felt extremely safe.

Ive owned and used many boats over my 40years of boat owning, also worked as a marine rescue volunteer for around 15 yrs and have to say my pro is the best fun Ive ever had in any boat.
