Just swap the masts. Done!

You appear to be a good candidate for membership in our American Schooner Association. Spend some time with us and we'll have you further convinced of the wisdom in vice versa-ing your rig. We tolerate a certain number of members with backwards schooners.

LOL! Backward Scooners, I love it. Wandering Star is the big sisiter of Aries, a 36' schooner built by Crosby, designed by WD Knott. WS is a ten percent enlargement, ketch rigged. I also looked at a Colvin Pinkie schooner, Rosemary Ruth, but she was a bit small. I've sailed on charter schooners Raindancer II and Grace Bailey. I'll revisit the ASA site, maybe catch up with some members at classic boat events. Thank you.
