There are definite advantages of both types. I let someone else type all that, but for offshore...I would feel more secure with the keel stepped mast. Look at most blue water boats have, keel stepped. If your removing the mast regularly for storage, transport, etc the deck stepped has advantages. New Englanders will probably have allot to say here?
