Catalina 22 sail on Capri 22

Thanks for the helpful responses to our search for a boat. We recently sailed a Capri 22 that is for sale and really like it. The boat appears to be in great shape; my main concern is that the mainsail is a Catalina 22 sail and not a Capri sail. According to the spec sheets, the max hoist height of the mainsail on a Catalina 22 is 21'. The Capri has a maximum hoist hieght of 26'. This makes me think that the boat may have been dismasted at some point and now has a Cat 22 mast. Otherwise, how would the Catalina sail fit on the Capri mast? I know enough to know that I know very little. Please let me know if you think I am worrying about something I should not worry about. The sails are in good shape and I am not racing the boat although I do worry about what happens when I go to sell it a couple of years from now. If the "fix" is simply installing a Capri mainsail, then it's no big deal. If the fix is a new mast, I'm still looking for a boat. Thanks!
