Triton Mainsheet?

So I'm redoing the mainsheet on my 28' Pearson Triton. Her main has 270 sq. feet and end boom sheeting. I was thinking about going with a 4:1 using Garhauer 30 fiddle blocks. Is that going to be enough?

I believe the standard main on the Triton is 231 ft2. A 4/1 mainsheet system with end boom sheeting should be fine.
