Default cutting a carbon boom

Hi all,
Has anybody ever tried to cut (reducing lenght) of a boom?
I have and old NP 260-310 carbon boom, and am planning to cut aproximately 20 cm of it so I can rig a 9-9.5sqm sail... However I am a bit afraid that it will force the boomīs head to structural damage as I will be closing a bit the gap between the two sides of the tailīs end of the boom... any tips?
Cheers
