Alajuela 33 water tankage

I finally got a chance to actually measure the inside dimensions of the water tank on the 33 I recently bought.
It holds 34.8 gallons. The previous owner had said 50, and info I find on the net says anything from 50 (Yachtworld) to 75 (sailboatdata.com) to 110 (brochure that Rod G. has posted).
Am I missing something? A second tank buried somewhere? Or is that the actual water capacity of those boats?
What have others got in their 33's?
Thanks for any info.
John V.

Uh, make that 99 gallons. What I thought was the end of the tank was
only a baffle without holes where I expected them. The tank extends
aft of the access hatch nearly to the mast.
Still way off the last owner's claim, and well over 75. I wonder why
the disparity?
Not that I mind. 99 gallons is a lot of water.
