Convert Ketch into Sloop?
As soon as I sell my house in Australia, I will be doing the same as SimonV and going to the U.S to buy a boat, am looking at buying a Morgan 461, but there are only a couple available, and the brokers keep sending me 462 (ketch) which I am not interested in, the 461 & 462 are the same except one is a ketch.
My question is, as there are a lot of 462's available, and any boat I buy I would be looking to refit or update in readiness for full time cruising, could I buy a 462 ketch and remove the mizzen mast, have an in-boom furler fitted and new mainsail, and also convert to cutter rig.
