Dont know what happened to it, but it ran well.
I may edit this if I can find some info to back my memory up
Having synchronised my memory with documented fact, I can advise that the Kineo described above was in fact 40 feet, with FRP deck and twin 928 V8s. Started in '87, it never ran, as the project was put on hold. I've no idea what became of her, but when she left Comer Eng, she was almost complete. A Kineo 50 was fully drawn up and was to follow back to back, but again that project stalled. That hull lived on in another guise.
