T27-2 boom raising

I am considering adding a cockpit dodger to our 1979 T27-2. As evidence by measuremetns and a knot on my head, the boom needs to be raised by a foot or so. I have seen this model at various sites with what appear to be raised booms.

Does anyone have experience with raising the boom either pro or con? The decision will affect the purchase of a new main in the near future.

Returning to the forum after a long absence,

sailingfool will become famous soon enough
FWIW C&C raised the boom a foot on the 30 Mark I in the middle of the production run (1972-1983), I believe 1978, as the original boom was a head-banger (I think I still have some dents...). The performance implications werren't considered material, no rating changes.

I'd say raise the boom. Go for max roach in a new main. If this is a roller-furling boom, you might see if you can replace it with something longer, and switch to slab reefing.
