Advice on SC36 Ketch / Sloop

Hi Guys

I just joined the forum.

Have done a fair bit of cruising in from 26ft to 56 ft yachts, coastal and ofshore.

Am about to buy a South Coast 36 (Oz Design) There are a few available, however two are ketchs and I want a cutter rigged sloop.

Has anyone got any idea as to whether the mast is stepped further aft in the cutter and forward in the ketch? Logically it should be so, however these boat are scattered all over Oz and I can't practically inspect them all.

If the only difference is the boom length and mainsail foot, then its a small matter to change this, ie overboard with the mizzen and rigging
