Default US NAVY has a cat! It is fast.

Just watched a "Military Channel" program on the Navy's newest boat the Sea Fighter. It is a catamaran style hull, 262' long 1400 tons (280,000lbs) turbine and diesel powered. That ship really moves at 50 knots (57.5 mph). They even landed a helicopter on the ship at top speed. That had to be a bit scary.

Maybe the NAVY could enter it into some Poker Runs.
