N30 mast bend

I recently bought my 1986 N30 MkIII and noticed considerable mast prebend. On the advice of my sailmaker I reduced the prebend to 2 inches by easing off on the forward lower shrouds. However, I noticed that under sail I have about 4+ inches of bend. Can anyone comment on this? Is this normal for the boat? I need to know as I want to order a new main and the mast bend must be accounted for in the cut.
