I was weighing up my mast step position before taking it down this Autumn and it seemed to me it might be a notch too far forward at the foot.

I have not noticed any dreadful effects on the trim or sailing of the boat.

Should I put the foot back one notch to the rear?

Here are snaps of the position:

If the boat is sailing fine I would leave well alone.   It will be a pain to change back if you find moving the foot has an undesirable result.
