You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I believe it is an Alajuela 33, a Ray Richards design built in California.
By Jove, he's got it. Well done that man.

It is the little sister to the much better known Alajuela 38, a cutter rigged, full-keeld double ender based on Atkin's Ingrid ketch (which in turn was based on the Archer lifeboat designs). They were popular in the late-70's, back during the Westsail era, and built in So. California too. We have a couple 38's moored at our marina.

I know even less about the 33. We passed one once about ten years ago while circling for a mooring in Annapolis. The bowsprit was suspicious, and in response to my hale the owner confirmed the make and model of the boat. Alajuela had earned a well deserved reputation for high quality metal fabrication, including cleats, gudgeons, portlights etc in bronze, and nice solid stainless work on the bowsprit/platforms. In the OP's photo, the sprit design was the giveaway.

I'm not sure when Alajuela closed-up, probably in the late-70's or early 80's. Someone on the list can probably fill-in the details.

I didn't catch it. Great job. I believe most were owner finished boats - kinda custom as I recall. They've sailed around the world. There's an active Alajuela list on sailnet - the other one. There's a great guy on list named Rod Jermaine who helped build them and has a lot of information - he's helped a lot of people with his knowledge.

tenuki will become famous soon enough
Raymond Richards is probably most notable for designing several offshore boats for Cheoy Lee (32, 38, 39, & 41) the Haida 26, and several boats for Ranger boats of Kent ( R26, R24, R20 ).

I own a R24, she's a sweet, well mannered little keel boat. The R20s around here have a cult following and still race one design despite their smaller numbers. A lot of folks I've talked to here in the PNW know about him, probably due to Ranger Boats.

Hey all, thought it might be a Bruce Roberts 341... But, alas, I was wrong.
