Not many Barracudas were built, and by different builders. You need to know the history of the boat and where it came from.
You might want to have a look at the MAIB site for details of an incident at St Ives http://www.maib.gov.uk/cms_resources/Big_Yellow.pdf
We used a Barracuda 7.4 at our centre in Oban for several years, and it was a great boat -really nice hull (rather narrow, but excellent in the sea).
Get the right one, and the Barracuda is a good boat, but care needed in choosing the right one
