If you move the mast position up in the track and don't raise your boom, your sailing stance will be a little "crunched up".

Usually, if you move the mast up in the track significantly, you raise the boom to allow a more upright stance and to keep the sail foot from hitting the deck or dragging in the water.

I don't think it's possible to drag a boom in the water unless you are using a 25 year old antique boom and sail.
