Plane engine in a boat

by Rob Pekaar
(Perth, Australia)

My Grandfather from a European fishing village, lived during the second world war. A war plane crashed nearby and he went out in a truck with a few of his friends and souvenired the water cooled engine. The engine was put in a fishing boat that needed a new engine. I have heard that "the result wasn't what they was hoping". Any ideas on what sort of issues they would have encountered??
