Hi, everyone;

Finally took our 1961 Shell Lake Rocket out for her maiden voyage today. She performed like a champ, absolute blast to drive. We love it!

Thanks, frog. Rocket race...that'd be cool.

We've got a 50HP Mercury Jet 45, 2-stroke/3 cylinder, oil injected. Speedometer showed 32mph on calm waters today. Definitely fast enough for us!

So glad you could get it out. That sure is a great looking boat both on and off the water! Lots of family time ahead.
