I think that the original design of the golden rocket is classic. I think going that route with a slight twist would be good. I would solicit input from the guys who have or have had Rockets and get their input on what they would change to make it a better ride. Maybe building a hatch for the rear compartment. I know that the one Chad (Beave) made for his Vagabond really looks sharp and changes the overall look of the boat.

This has been sitting too long, I still have the Co-op Flash in front of it that I will be starting back on soon but I wanted to see if I could solicit input on designs for this Rocket. I don't yet have a plan but I think I will not be going back as originally built and I don't really want to just repeat what I did with the Flyer. I am looking for suggestions :hmm:
