It was never really stated exactly when Rum Rogers Sr and the others sailed to find Big Whoop. It could be said that it happened long enough ago that Rum Rogers Jr has now had time to grow up into the man he is in MI2.

Remember, Captain Marley was Elains Grandfather and considering he had to have been of a somewhat younger age in order to be fit enough to captain a ship, I'd think he'd gone to find Big Whoop when Elaine was just a child, and so it'd seem fair to say that even if Rum Rogers Sr was roughly the same age as Marley at the time (i.e, old enough to have a fairly grown up son, but young enough to take a rough sea voyage), his son could quite easily be that age in the game.
