The SkyLab is the water rocket that set the standard. If you want to learn how to build and fly water rockets, get this one. Study it. Examine the fin materials. See first-hand the impact-absorbing reusable mechanical connections. Learn how it triumphs over aerodynamics that slow other rockets down. See how the guide rod and tube keep your rocket pointed up until it is stable. Experience the ease with which this well-designed system goes together. Marvel at the world's simplest and best launcher. It'll inspire you to go beyond what you ever thought possible, to invent, to innovate, to create, to triumph over the impossible.
Or, you could just have plain old fun with it.
