Well, your boom is rather low in the window but this is frequent with North Sails, made for big guys. I have a pretty similar position whatever the wind speed. It's difficult to see from a few pictures whether the mast bends properly of not (the last one looks strange actually). Anyway small differences in bend curves may hardly be noticeable but translate in significant overstress. If you want to keep your RAM F8, my advice would be to get the closest compatible mast you can find. 60 to 75% carbon should be OK in this size.
