The guy I talked with was John. He was not the guy that rigged the boat.But, built a 32ft cat (copied from the Shadow cat)
Didnt have anything nice to say about the ChrisCat.

Any help would be great. I was just told that they were good boats after 1985.

This one looks clean & well taken care of.
4 motors so I am a little worried about the transom.
It has strong supports & no stress cracks, so that sounds good
Thanks
Jeff

slowoutboards,
How did that ChrisCat run when you raced it?
Do you ever remember it being damaged or stuffed?

You know, you can drive your boat straight to my house without getting out of the boat(fuel only)
Great way to watch the Grand Prix & fire works?
Interesting?

Did you talk to John at Superboats? If so, the comments above make some sense as Superboats makes a 32 that looks remarkably like a Shadow derivative. Clearly, you did not talk to Joey at East Coast Marine.

Call Joey at East Coast Marine. Ask him about Shadow, Conquest and Chris Craft. I think you'll get a different answer. Also, do a search for posts about Shadow, Chris Craft, Conquest and/or from Glinder and T2x. You'll find those informative.

Jeff
Why are you cutting it up ? Is this the boat Shane and Nicky Cutro stuffed in KW and tore up the front of the boat ??

I hava a 1984 CHRIS CAT that in past lives was rigged with #2s, #3s, #4s, #5s, . Been raced as Tropic Heat in the early 90s. Turned it into a pleasure boat in 95 and now it has ASD8s. It has had everything from 400 to 800 hp. They are heavy boats , mine is 10,600Lbs wet, Runs 110 on GPS with 700hp per side. I LOVE THIS BOAT!! It will run fast in the rough and still be safe. I think you need to research these boats on this forum and you will find that they are not junk, they do not come apart (built like a tank) and that they are a great value. I have no experience with the OB (maybe lighter layup??). When Chris Craft stopped building these boats, they had 3 sets of molds. One was bought by American offshore and is built as their 31AO. One went to Awesome Powerboats, and is built as their 3100, and one was last seen at Puma in Fla. I believe that the IO was faster in the beginning due to weight and available OB hp. There have certainly been many advances in hull design since George Linder designed this boat 25 or so years ago, but these boats were fast and fun then and not much has changed. Just my 2 cents worth.

Ok, lets start at the beginning,
I bought Shaun&Nicky boat from a guy in upper New York.
They stuffed the boat, hit the bottom and broke the left stringer (3ftback),& the deck fell in.
The boat was fixed to look good (only!)
It was fully rigged, less power heads whem I bought it.
Was ready to repair the front but, moisture test stated 80% in the back of the boat & under gas tanks.
(Back was repaired prior from a fire)
I paid what the trailer was worth (nice one!)
Love to fix it but I think its over.

I agree she was heavy & solid (also won alot)!
The Chris Cat is also a good boat and thats why I am looking to buy one.
I also have a STV with a 2.5 efi offshore & love the outboards.
Thats one nice Cat, why did you sell it?

Oh ya, I did not talk with Joey at East Coast Marine but hope to.
It seems that they still are making boats from the molds, I guess they could run

Love to ride in this 30ft ChrisCat with 4 2.5 but its to cold!
Not to many with outboards?
Thanks for the help in my search for another toy
