raise boom end 6" with new sail

I have ordered new sails and after talking with FX decided to have it cut so the clew end of my boom is raised 6" while the tack stays the same. My boom as is can scrape the top of my head if i am not careful. i had mentioned to FX that i may want to cut the new sail 6" so i could raise my boom and they suggested just raising the aft end with the sail. Is this a good idea? The boat is an '87 Pearson 27-2
