    That's what I thought also... I was told that's where the D-plate originated...

    Only for the 1200s. As far as I know all the 1300s in the UK are fitted with cats as stock.

    Well my 2004 had one and it was a UK supplied ski. I keep triping over it in the garage.

    Loose the cat and:

    Your engine exhaust will run cooler which means you could loose about 50 rpms and your boat will slow down (you loose some fuel scavaging)

    You will get temp alarms which is why you need the chip.

    You will not clog up your pipe with cat con parts.

    Divert water from the head overboard and you will have a cooler running engine and a hotter exhaust pipe. A hotter pipe means you could potentially get your rpms back. Notice in the pictures how many of the fastest guys have water dumped overboard?

    If you have fitted that filter you posted before you really should get that d-plate fitted to keep the temp down in there (depending on what filter or flame arrester you have)
    There has been some threads about the after market flame arrester drawing in the heat that the cat gives out (not good)
    If you fit the d-plate problem solved (not as much heat)
