Dutchman Sail Flaking System Problem

Today was settlement on the 1994 Catalina 270 we purchased. Took her out for a ride and found that the Dutchman system lines were crossed. I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be this way but then realized the sail wouldn't rise.

This is the first I've used (or tried to use) the sail so I am not sure how the lines crossed on the Dutchman. Is this something I can just unscrew and just re-thread the lines or will it take a highly-paid expert to do it?

Thanks!

Jim
