Is anybody running a ranger Z520? I am looking a Z520 with a yamaha 250 sho. Pros vs cons? Does anyone know the difference between the Z520 and the Z520C ?
The Z520/521 model years preceded the Z520C/521C model years. I know that 2012 was a "non-C" model year for the Cammanche 500 series because I have a 2012. In a subsequent year (possibly 2013) there were some notable deck layout changes among other things, and the "C" was added to the model numbers. The console and bow were changed to accommodate larger electronics flush-mounted, for instance. Tool holder slots were added and the TM recessed tray changed a bit. There were other style related changes. I understand that the wetted hull didn't change, but I'm not an expert on knowing if that is correct or not.
I have fished from a 520C. I didn't sense a huge difference from the non C models. I don't care for that engine brand, but that's a personal choice on opinion of brand reputation.
