Bruce Roberts Mauritius 43 - Ketch to Cutter

Does anyone know anything about converting a Bruce Roberts Mauritius 43 from a ketch to a cutter? Were they designed for either rig? Does the mast have to be relocated? How high should the main mast be? Can I just use the original - short - mast? Can a person go back to BR himself and ask for such information?

Ask as a prospective buyer...

I've found Bruce Roberts to be very responsive but that was when I was asking as a prospective buyer.

I'd suggest sending a querry about a set of plans rather than about an existing boat.

I'm sure he has been burnt a few times answering enquiries abut boats built from pirated plans.

The mast height above the deck is 51 feet + or - 6 inches. of course the mast position on deck will alter.
