Any advises on shimming? If I want to put my backfoot more to the tail, I can slide the foil also in this direction or can I also tweak with shimming this scenario without having to move the foil?

I just saw some footage of me going comfortably upwind and recognized that my backfoot is a couple of inches in front of the mast. Is the mast position correct or should I remove it a bit backwards?

.... or should I rather remove my mast to the front, so that my backfoot is over the mast? Riding upwind I felt pretty comfortably with my backfoot a bit in front of the mast! If I had to put my foot more to the tail I wouldn't have felt comfortable....
I will test this next time.
