Rigging a Trimaran

I'm helping a friend with a new to him tri.
Before moving the boat I thought I would unroll the jib.

The PO has the jib sheet run outside the stays.
But when I set the sail it don't seem to set properly.

Is it possible that the sheets have to be run inside the stays for upwind and outside for downwind?
There is a traveler on the cabin top that is not rigged but that does not seem like it would help at all.
