I'm so sorry to stumble across Sam's passing just now while browsing online. Sam and I met by phone in May 1982 at the end of my 3-year search for Miss Bardahl, the champion hydroplane Sam had bought at liquidation in the mid-1970s. Sam and I corresponded over the years and especially in 2011-12, when I published a book about Miss Bardahl. Sam talked of coming to Chelan, Wash., to wash the vintage hydros run. Then our correspondence stopped in 2013. Without Sam, that glorious boat would not be around today, restored and thrilling fans. Thank you, Sam, for your friendship! May you rest in peace. --Jon Osterberg, Redmond, WA
