Default info needed on this particular chriscat from connecticut

Hi everyone!

this really is only for my personnal curiosity, it really does not change anything since I already bought it and it is sitting in my driveway !

so, 85 chriscat I bought from Chris at ocean performance in old saybrook connecticut. sat for... 15-20 years there.

some previous vynil lettering shows :

Owner /driver : K Muller
Powered by: Jim Pape
Rigging by: Diamond auto

anyone knows the owner? what kind of life did this boat have? what king of HP were in there? why it was left for 15 years outside?

boomer from OSO said he remembers the boat came into pilots point Westbrook one year for fuel late 80 early 90, was really loud.

Any info is appreciated!

thanks![ATTACH=CONFIG]567494[/ATTACH]

In the mid 80s there was a Chris cat powered by triple v8 outboards, where did that end up?

I remember that boat from when I was a kid, it was called "Yo Boat". Karl's brother used to run it.
