      Since no one has answered you I will! The
      ALAJUELA 38 was designed from Williasm Atkin's INGRID without
      permission. The boats were first build by Don Chaphan in
      California. It is really a long story and the best thing to do is
      get a copy of BEST BOATS by Ferenc Mate, published by Albatross Pub.
      in Canada. There is a very informative chapter on the whole
      situation. Hope this is helpful. Pat Atkin
