While 24 inches seems a bit excessive most mast head genoas stop at least 12-18 inches from the masthead, or so I thought. Have a look through some of the image files in the Sailnet Gallery. The headboard is not hard up against the stay fixing point. I don't understand the point you were making regarding the foot being below the boom.
