"Over on the West Coast, Bob Millet is delving into the history of his 65' yawl Olinka (built as Barracuda II in 1953 to S&S design no. 876). She was built by the Bengt Plym yard in Neglingvaret, Sweden, where she remained until the 1960s. Bob was lucky to be able to talk to Rod Stephens about her history soon after buying her and learned that she was one of the first private yachts to be tank tested by S&S. Recently she was used in the HBO movie "Rat Pack", featuring as Kennedy’s yacht." (source)

And here is a link to a progress report on Bob's renovation of Olinka/Barracuda.
