pacific proa, move mast to leeward?

Hi All

I'm working on a wa'apa from Gary Dierkings outrigger canoe book, one of the reasons I'm interested in a proa is that I'm a bit stiff to be ducking a boom.
To get a bit more boom free room I'm considering moving the mast over about 6 inches over against the leeward side.

I'm just wondering if this is doable or what if any problems it might cause, if it matters I'll be using a fully battened lug rig.
