I would suggest stripping the cover, as it is heavy on warp speed and not required for the halyard, just leave enough cover so that when the sail is fully hoisted the cover stops at the mast base. Also Use the splicing instructions from the Marlow site much stronger eye splice. Don’t forget to lock stitch or it will creep on you.
