Wink Re: Chris Cats

Hats off to the design Rich and George. I bought the white Chris form Due and have been very impressed with the performance I have achieved on a very limited budget. These boats fly flat and run hard on rough water. My engines are all GM 509,s iron heads, hyd roller and 5psi of boost, drives are SSM3 1.58 with 32 4bladers on Daytona crashboxes. The dyno #'s were 736hp at 6100rpm. The best speed is [email protected] on flat water but cool air and it accelerates to 110 in a blink. If you can find a solid one you wont be disappointed as long as you can get over a few low speed smooth water true tunnel handling quirks. A good friend has a 1995 31 Awesome and the bottom is a direct COPY of my Chris.

There's a 1984 30ft on ebay, all original for 52,000.
Looks like it's been well taken care of. Lake Champlain boat.

I think most of these pics are Shadows, with the odd Chris Craft.

here's my old scow... was raced as HMS Dea Won. I bought it around 95, repainted it, bolted on a pair of 2.4 Bridgeports and used it 3 times. Bought a Cigarette and never looked back

Talking 86 Chris Cat

Here is my 86 Chris Cat, 1998 3.0's 300HP, bought it a couple years ago. First time out with 200 gals of gas and four people went 82.7 on the GPS and I made no changes to anything, ran the motors strait up and the jack plates a little low, I know better now and the boat is fast. Contacted Chris Craft and it was one of the last outboard racers built, (unfinished cabin). The last owner did most of all the changes, I have had a good time with the boat. Almost ran OPA last year, this year I have a couple potential sponsors and am thinking hard about running three races with them, raced cars for 35 years, this will be my last hoorah at 62 years old.
Will have to put the pictures in tomorrow, they won't upload for some reason.
