Yes. The line from the forward end of the boom goes aft, exits the boom, goes through the block, through the reef clew, and then back down to the boom to an eye. It sounds like an incomplete installation. The block/eye should be a few inches aft of the clew forming about a sixty degree angle when under tension.
