“Newly minted” pilot builds Gentleman’s racer with monster engine!
Congratulations to Nicholas Unger, who has recently graduated as a pilot and also built a 15 foot, 6
inch “Cracker Box” with a V8 325 hp. inboard engine (so he can simulate
flight training on water.!!!) Nick took a year to build this boat in his dad’s shop.
He removed part of the show room and the lunch room to accommodate the boat,
Needless to say, with a demanding course load as a pilot and
building a boat you have to admit Nick gets things done..
Nick is presently completing the windscreen and doing a varnish job on the boat
before he brings it out this summer.
The racer is very fast, a blast to drive and has rewarded Nick with hours
PS: If you happen to need a pilot or know of anyone hiring a pilot please let us know.
