I can't imagine not having head room under a bimini. Otherwise what's the point?

Raising your boom will raise the center of effort on the sail and increase the tendency to heel but reducing the amount of sail overall will reduce your healing and slow down your boat. The net effect on healing is something a designer will have to answer but your boat will definately be slower.
