The other issue I found out with an 8' pram I built as a teen, and used an over sized main, is in my case, the Center of Effort was farther back, and caused too much weather helm IIRC, and made it hard to control in some wind conditions. Granted I was dealing with a cat rig, but it can cause some other issues.
