Before you waste a lot of time re-ordering the lines, I'd assume that whoever put the lines in in the first place wasn't a complete dumbo. That plus you mentioning that they are crossed twice sounds like they have just swapped places/sheaves coming out of the boom. Since outhaul and reef lines can have a lot of slack when not in use, one might just have jumped over the other and you can revert it the same way!

Just a wild guess though.

Fair winds,
