Default Compression ring not level

Hi,

I'm pitching a 30' Colorado yurt in Hawaii, and I just noticed that the compression ring isn't level.

Can I loosen the rafter bolts and shift it even though the roof is already on? I think it may have happened when we got the heavy roof up there, the bolts may not have been tightened enough. It's not by too much, but it's visible. Maybe a 2" differ from one side to the other. The

dome

isn't installed yet.
Can it be fixed without the roof caving in on me??

Appreciate any advice!

Yes, you can. Be sure to make those nuts extra tight once it's level so it doesn't happen again.

Where in Hawaii?
Aloha!
