Question Shadow Cats... The Good/Bad/Ugly...any info

May be going to take a look at one this weekend.....30' 1985 model. Anyone own one or can shed some light on these cats? This would be my first cat so is this something that would be ok to start in? I know the Chris Cats are based off these and i heard alot of good things about those boats so these shouldnt be all that far off.....Please let me know ASAP!

BTW...its a twin I/O boat that had SBC's and has speedy#4's on the back right now.....current owner said he did 116mph with twin 650hp motors

Oops, sorry Wally!! Hope it looks good - seems like it would be a nice poker run boat - triple digits on small blocks would be a nice package!

its ok...i knew someone would eventually find her! LOL! I'm surprised it lasted this long without being posted!.....anyway yea your right it would....i wasnt planning on getting into a cat but i sorta like the package that its setup with right now....I was looking for a twin SBC boat.....actually a V but hell for the right price a cat will do nicely! As long as no one bids on it i'll be giving this guy a call back after the auction to setup a viewing time

Default George Linder design

Designer also of the Chris Cat.

The shadow is for small blocks only.

Good basic design, do a search on George in OSO, many threads w/ him in it.

I have a friend in NOLA that owns a Shadow (Hot Pursuit) with twin 600" (blown 10-71s) and it runs in excess of 150. He really likes the boat. I'll see if I can find the link to photos of the boat.
