Remember Plaidtastic? back in 2017, trying to figure out her original interior? Or questioning Rockets yellow bottoms? Well. Seth Katz’s, the Rocket Master has found a time capsule plaid interior Rocket. Yes. As in varnished once. And still some original interior material. And has her original yellow bottom, and runs. And floats.
The Katzs team is 100% preserving it in 100% original condition for future generations. This is a museum boat for sure. And settles any debate about yellow bottoms vs Gold, or the material. Which Seth says has been a huge trial and error job. With NOS Plaid being almost impossible to to identify and then locate, and then possibly have to make.
But the plaid is the cool part of this series of Rockets history. And with that said, we also were able to obtain some original images from another plaid Rocket fellow Woody Boater Kurt Petry and his family boat. All this has come together and answered so many questions.
