I was wondering is there any way to scale a CS23 down to a 19' or a 21' ?

Thanks in advance for your time!
Shouldn't be terribly difficult. I would say keep it within 10%.
Please read the following article for all scaling-related questions:

10% would take it down to 20.7'

Scaling her down to 21' would work well. There is enough safety margin in the sole height to guarantee proper cockpit drainage when scaled down to about 21'.
For a small fee, I would provide scaled stations and panels dimensions.
