Kicking a little sand in the base of the Echo Tower of the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge:

And now, cleverly, Rocketboat sneaks up on Delta Tower in the shadow of the roadbed:

And then, some more donuts:

And here are some shots of Rocketboat from back in the aughts:


See them here. (I guess RB is red at the front and back and that fades to orange on the sides.)


Someday, I’ll ride you, Rocketboat.


Refreshing RocketBoat Adds Some Needed Color to San Francisco Bay – 2010 Season is On

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Of course, some people* don’t like you, RocketBoat, but I do. You add color to the bay. You complete me, RB. Thanks for coming back in 2010.

Get all the deets on the Rocket Boat here from sailboat-hating Ken Garcia.  And take a look at the action on YouTube. RocketBoat just might rock your world. Check it:

Came back for a 2nd round and this time we had a party of 7 go on the Rocketboat. That boat kicks ass. It goes about 45 mph and the driver loves to spin donuts.”


Now, we’ve all heard the expression “let’s get busy.” Well, this is a boat who gets “biz-zay!” Consistently and thoroughly. Look at RB totally pwning a local yachtsman just the other day:

Even “smart chicks” love the RocketBoat. You will too.

Get all the deets after the jump.

See you there!

*Local sailboat people disapprove of motor vessels in general, and RocktBoat in particular. RocketBoat, RocketBoat/ It’s not your fault.

But, good thing there’s a bar pilot on board. What’s that? There’s not?

On second thought, maybe it’s a Good Thing there’s no half-million dollar a year pilot on board. Rocket Boat managed to clear the tower and proceed back to Fisherman’s Wharf.
