The Restoration of Famed Hydroplane MISS BARDAHL
Join us on Thursday, September 14 for dinner followed by an exciting presentation by Dixon Smith regarding his ownership and restoration of the hydroplane MISS BARDAHL. Racing from 1962 to 1965 she was a champion – not just winning, but setting lap, race and heat records! After changing owners and coasts throughout the years, the Hydroplane Museum brought MISS BARDAHL back to the Pacific Northwest in 1983. Dixon and his brother David got her in 2000 and have restored her to prime racing condition. Dixon, a Boeing test pilot and Navy veteran, has always been involved with hydroplanes and is proud to give MISS BARDAHL another life in the races.
