Re: Looking for an Alajuela 33.

Do you think you could do an extended cruise, say 6 months with the two kids on the Alajuela 33? I've been looking at the Alajuela google group, which I just found, for common issues with the boats. The only common problem I came accross fir the 33 was the holding tank lid and maybe some wood rot down by the cap rail. Anything else that you are aware of? I'm also really curious as to how she sailed comoared to the other boats you've owned or sailed on.

I like the Dana, there's one at a marina near me thats been sitting for the last 6 years at least, with what looks like little use. I contacted the owner awhile back and he had planned to possibly sell the boat but as far as I know it's still there.

It's Ben, the guy who put together your kite cam setup.

I actually lived aboard an Alajuela 33 for 5 years or so, really regret selling it. Makes no sense, I owned the boat as a single guy and now that I'm married with 2 kids we have a Dana 24!

Anyway, loved the boat and happy to answer any questions you have about them.

All the best.
