It is you are alright. Those old Shadow and Chris-Cats, not too mention all those 32' Skaters did well with big blocks, and small blocks too. Build what you want, dial it in, enjoy it.

i checked the site and it's a narrow 30' 6" cat w/140 gal capacity. outboard cats are larger these days. there's not even close enough lift to make it perform with all that weight!

What? Come on man.

That is the exact same logic when people said twin BBC were way too much stern weight for a 27' Magnum Sport. But that just isn't true. I wouldn't mind that 30' cat with a set of 525's that would be A-OK with me.

That's why they don't make them anymore? Now they are called American Offshore, and they have big blocks, and when they were Chris Cats, there a few big block ChrisCats here in New Jersey that ran really well back in the day such as Tango and Cash, plus Ballistic.

Come on man!

The boat ran 110mph with 390hp sb's in powerboat tests, the ilmor weighs less than the scorpions, the doug wright ran into the. 130's with mercury 600's. I see a lot of specter 32's and eliminators, and dcb in that size that run very well

it is true! competitive V single engine boats are over 30' these days. twin v's are about 40'....OLD SV with 750's have no chance against a modern day SV with 525's! old super cats same story...now SCL 525's r racing at 120's! triple OB cats of that era would get beat down by a new twin x-cat!
