wish I had a yacht to escape to! I'd love to find out what happened to that boat. research on it is weird, it appears it was being used by both Charlie AND Paulette in the 40's - but I remember seeing a tiny little news article from the early 50's once saying Charlie had sold it. Never found the article again. The stories that boat could tell...
I think there were two boats named Panacea. I've read that the original Panacea (the one they are sunbathing on above) was legally owned by Paulette. It was a gift from Charlie but he must have had it put in her name and that's why she got it after they split up. Then during his marriage to Oona, he bought a second yacht and named it Panacea. This may be the one that was sold in the '50s.
I've never seen this photo before! :o I always enjoy seeing new photographs of Charlie & Paulette together, Thank you very much for sharing this :)
