Post some photos of what you've got... the mast base and such... that would really make it alot easier to discuss... you've got some serious weirdness in your setup...and I think the guy rooked you... but... if you post photos, maybe we can get this straightened out properly.
BTW, the wire-to-rope join should be a splice, not a knot and electrical tape.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
