No reason why it would not work. I would suggest you try it without first to see whether you need the boost. Makes more sense to do everything you can to avoid shading. Even the shadow of the backstay can have a serious effect.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
