It could just be a difference in the slight structural changes that occur between a ketch rigged boat and a sloop rigged boat. You're not really comparing apples to apples so to speak. If the surveyor found that there was no water in the core, no voids and no delamination, it probably isn't a big problem. However, that said, it is one that you might want to address, should you buy the boat... since flexing is not good for the deck.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
