Nope, the Hurl Maker I was a car I used to campaign in SCCA events. I instructed in the car and it would never fail to get someone sick. The plane is the Hurl Maker II. Thus, the Pocketship will be Hurl Maker III.

Surprisingly, for all the rides I have given in the plane, including aerobatics and straight and level flights in choppy air, it hasn't produced the same results as the car, thank goodness!
Apparently I'm a boat builder. I will have to wait to find out if I'm a sailor.
