Default 125 mph????

I could be totally wrong, but this thing looks heavy! I would think 125 is being very optimistic.

The fastest one I know of was "Ballistic" Had around 750 hp each and ran 119. This was the fastest boat around a few years back . This boat was set up right too ! I know of a few others with bigger power that didn't break 115.

I was told that American Offshore owns the Chris-Cat molds and used them for the 3100.

I remember way back when, bery early 90s, Bob & Jay Muller raced a Chris-Cat "Tropic Heat".

Yup...Chris Craft made a cat and t2X will give the blow by blow, although this one's been covered pretty extensively a month or so ago...

THat boat is based on the Shadow cat designd by George Linder....and yes, with that power, I believe it is certainly capable of 125...

just my thoughts...

Question Chris Cat?

The hull looks like the Chris Cat, but the cockpit seating is all wrong. Drivers position was in the middle.

The Chris Cats were produced from 84-88 or so, and they had center seating. The cabin door is in the wrong place, should be on the side. And they missed the proper vintage by about 10 years.

I suspect it is a Chris Cat hull with a home built cockpit liner.

This is an old design hull (by G. Linder) that is known for porpoising in the mid range 60-75 mph. With the right horsepower you could do 125mph. But it would probably take 1200 hp a side

Newer designs like Skater, Eliminator,Motion and Spectre don't have this problem.

Bottom line don't waste your money, there are better cats out there.
