Binding setup help

Just bought my Never Summer Proto Ct and decided not to go wide and get the CTX. I ended up getting the 154 cm which has a 251 waist. I ride size 11.5 Thirty-Two ultralights and XL Flow NXT-ATs. I realize I really need a wider board, but the CTX just looked and felt way too big. Anyways neither one of my mounting options for my bindings are great, both leaving me with overhang, but I would like to know which one every one thinks it the better option…
The Board

Option 1:
This option places the boot in the most centered position. It appears to have equal toe and heel overhang. The problem is, in order to achieve this, the base plate is shifted towards the toe side of the board, and the binding just barely hangs over the toe edge.
Pictures of the bindings in this position:

Relatively centered boot:

Toe overhang:

Heel overhang:

Toe contact point: (doesn’t seem to be too much of a problem)

Option 2:
This option leaves the binding perfectly centered, but places the boot more on the heel side of the board leaving significantly more heel overhang.

Heel overhang:

Heel contact point:

Let me know what you guys think. Im leaning toward option one because id prefer to have the boot center, and it doesn’t appear that the bindings will ever really make contact. Option 1 also allows me to extend the heel slide of my bindings so they make more contact with the heel of the boot. Thanks in advance

Not too sure if I am correct but it looks like you can adjust the highback position of the binding, I would center the bindings on the board and move the highback inward to center your boot to the bindings.

I have the same issue with my Flow Fives. Did you end up going with option 1 or did you move your highback/heel cup?

I thought you were only supposed to move that forward if your boots were on the small end for your bindings.
