INTREPID was a US America's Cup defender in 1967. She was designed by Olin Stephens, plus had a new design added by Dick Carter of Boston who added a flap on the trailing edge of a shortened keel for stability. Backers were: William Strawbridge (manager), Harold S. Vanderbilt, Patrick E. Haggerty, Burr Bartram. Crew: Rod and Olin Stephens and others for a total of 16. Mosbacher and Romagna designed the ship layout so that the crew was evenly distributed overall and most of the winches were below deck. Original negative 1984.187.183427F.
