If you can get the sail high enough so the boom clears the dodger...problem solved. I have a rugged cunningham on my main. It really helps a lot to move the belly of the sail forward when close hauled. In using the windvane (I see you have one too) it's critical to get the sails trimmed just right so the helm is balanced. The vane won't work if there's a lot of weather helm.
