Hey T2X need some advice please- any idea roughly what my1984 30 ft shadowcat outboard model would weigh without engines ? an old add I saw said the boat weighed 2800 lbs -but I find that hard to believe as it tows and feels much heavier than that and someone else said it weighed closer to 7,000 lbs- any expert advice would be greatly appreciated (thinking of buying a boat lift or marine railway)
many thanks for private pm to this question
as always-your advice and info -it is greatly appreciated !!!!!

So, what is your name? You know who I am and I make no bones about it. I've sent you a couple of IMs in the past and gotten no resp. Are you hiding, because I'm surely not.
I have some pictures of my uncles shadow cat but dont know how to post them.
So I've finally found a 30 Shadow Cat for sale it's a 1990 needs a good amount of work, front floor is water damaged and floor needs replacing which is the major
repair needed. Seller is asking $18,500 with triple 2.5 Mercury on high jack plates, I send a inspector to see the boat personally all three engines run good and strong.
Name of the boat is Cat Attack. What do you guys think of their price? and ive heard rumor that the later shadow cats were not built of the same material as they were in the 80's boats as a result were considerably weaker hulls. Is there any truth to that?
The Shadow Cats of the 90's were built by a different team that the ones in the 80's, so there certainly could be some truth to the newer ones being weaker.
I think that is a fair price for the boat with 3 strong 2.5's. I think I know the boat as well. Is it white with red on it?
Yes it is, reads cat attack on the side but I found some pics of the boat on here in the water from 2006 with out the writing on the side. the sponsors on the front are partially red.
If you read the post asking for shadow cat help that is the boat im speaking of.
