A lot of work for no gain. Drill out the bulkhead mounting points for the chainplates and pot with thickened epoxy, use larger hardware, build deck islands out of thickened epoxy to deter water intrusion through the chainplate ports, and call it done. Bigger, stronger, better, faster, cheaper with no change in geometry.
I'm not so sure that the change in geometry would be all that big a deal. Moving the shroud outboard 4 inches would only increase the angle by about one degree. I seriously doubt that the original tangs, etc., were made with a tolerance of less than one degree.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
