The 420, 500, and 550 hulls have been relatively unchanged since 2003. Prior to that there have been changes every few years. Since 1989 there have been:
Pro 420, 470, 500,530,550 and 600
Pro 7,9,12,15, and 16
And now back to pro 420,500,550 and 650

Do you remember what prop you had and what engine?
We had a 2005 Yamaha 50hp EFI on it, no idea now what the prop was.

Zodiac puts a 10 5/8" x 12" aluminum prop on the Pro 500/ Yamaha 50 package from the factory here in the states. However every engine is gonna be different.

Zodiac pro 500

Was trying to post on another topic and my tech skills are insufficient to remove this photo using my iPad, so here is a photo of my Zodiac Pro.

Had a 420 Yachtline (same hull?) - it was fine when smooth, but as you can see here it slams in the chop!

Are you sure as I was told the hulls were improved in the more recent models, looking at a few hulls online of older boats they look different to mine.

Older style with less chines would surely have less lift and stability underway.
