Longer boom

The boom on my Cross 38 is 2 feet shorter than the call out in the drawing. The present boom section is 3 and 3/4 inches by 6. I have a boom from another boat the section on it is 4 and 1/2 by 8 inches would this be too big? The hoist is 38 feet. I would like to get a main with more roach, hence more weight.
Tring to get ready for Tahiti
Thanks for any input

Re: Longer boom

Nope, it wont be "too big", especially if you're greatly upsizing your main.
