ROCKET II Pool Winner Pin, Brooklyn, NY – 1966
Every daily pool winner aboard the "ROCKET II" was given this pin as a memento during the 1960s. (We found this one tucked away in an old tackle box and unfortunately, it is a bit rusty.) Captain Laddie Martin operated the "ROCKET II" from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. Built in 1942 as the 104-foot US Navy Air–Sea Rescue Boat "P-106", she became a party fishing boat after the end of World War II.
