June 7, 2007: Re-launch
After nearly 43 years, the 1962-65 Miss Bardahl "Green Dragon" returned to the water!
After last running in San Diego in October 1965, the boat was lifted out of the water by three crew members: Dixon Smith directing the crane, David Smith on the stern line, and Skip Schott on the bow line.
Almost 43 years later, the same three individuals returned the Green Dragon back into the water for the first time since San Diego, 1965!
The boat ran three times with Dixon driving on all three runs.
David went for the first ride, followed by Skip and then Ryan.
The boat ran wonderfully. Please see the Publicity Page for several articles covering the event.
