I guess that would work okay. But by moving the bail farther aft, you will effectively be choosing between more dodger or more bimini. In the hotter climate where we sail, I would always go for more bimini -- but in New England you might choose differently. Are you still planning to relocate to the Carolinas?
On our 31, we have two attachment points on the boom for the mainsheet. We use the further forward location, which is vertically above the traveller (when it and the boom are centerlined). This gives the best sheeting angles of the two choices. Even positioned here, we could have a much larger dodger than we do.
Our other attachment point is about a foot aft of the one we use. It works, but the sheeting angles are not quite so good (especially with the sheet eased out on a deep reach) and it would interfere with our bimini more.
