If you are building the boat in theory you should be intimate with the boats characteristics.
The short answer is no, the longer answer is no, of course not. Unless a boat is purposely under rigged by her designer because of her intended use or use area increasing the rig without changing the design to handle it doesn't work.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
