This is question for Kai Nui. I would PM him if he doesn't see this. I would note you did not say what your boat's length is.

Overall, I think you'll find there is a bit of flexibility in rig design overall but it isn't something for most owners to try their hand at.

Also, I'd check out this thread, but specifically this post

38' 6" from deck to mast head on mine. My boat was built to 35' plans. (It is 37 with the swim stepextension.) Originally my boat was built as a ketch, but was converted to a sloop. I have the specs for the ketch rig available.
The boom is another story. The backstays seem to be riged different on almost every Piver I have seen. Mine are to the outside of the ammas, not to the transoms. This limits the length of the boom to 14'. The boom is about 4' above the deck. I need the clearance for the pilot house. If you do not need the clearance, I would lower the boom to get some extra length.
