As it happens mate of mine works for Finnings, we were discussing this a few months back last time i was in the pub, he said problem with cats as well as pricey there getting a bit long in the tooth now compared to MTU ,MAN with regards to weight ,power weight and fuel economy ,
one of the reasons that the RNLI,s Medina class jet powered RIB back in the early 1980,s was shelved as the cat engines were a bit too heavy and costly for the size of boat ,

from memory think our old cat powered Arun class boat did around 44 gallons per hour on full noise.
