How Fast Do You Think This Boat Will Run, And How The Ride Quality Will Be.

Chris Cats were 30 feet. They are great old school rough water cats. Ours had 370 HP's and SSM II's and ran right around 80. The one you are describing would run around 100 I bet.

I was going to say 110ish, only because I have a friend that's had two 31's, and his fastest one had 750's & ran about 120.

His were under the American Offshore brand name, which were Chris Cat molds/boats re-branded.

100 + easily, it's a great hull, I've seen 110 with 700hp with Bravo's, I would think you would see a speed benefit from the surface drives, they do really well for their size in the rough
