New deck stepped mast for Trintella 42 /USA

The new mast is ready to be shipped but I am delaying delivery(and final payment) as I am not happy with the rigger telling me that I need to move the mast 6" further forward to align the shrouds with the center of the mast (twin spreaders)Not only was the old mast in the same position for 20 odd years,it would place the mast support right up against the forward bulkhead and the plate on the top through the bulhead into the forward cabin?? Then I was advised to have swept back spreaders and finally everything is OK as is. There are 3 chainplates on both sides in the original position, now I am hesitant and would worry on passage that the stick might fall down,heaven forbid!
Any comments would be appreciated
