Bristol 32 yawl rig conversion

Does anyone have any idea about converting a B32 sloop to the optional yawl rig?

I'm wondering if the deck mounted maststep sloop version is in the same place as the yawl or if it must be moved. From photos I've seen of the yawl, it looks like there must be a split backstay (?)

Also, any ideas for links to view the actual rigging details of each boat?

Thanks>

It is my understanding that the Bristol 32 yawl used the mast from a Bristol Alberg 22 mast. They had additional framing at the maststep. The mainsail, boom and backstay was different as well.
