That is the way sails are designed to reef. In the kind of bad weather you would use a third reef, there are big waves. You want the boom lifted a bit higher than "normal" to avoid tripping on the waves.

Your sailmaker built your sail correctly. It is not your "fault" the boom is lifted, rather that is the way it should be.

I concur, that looks absolutely correct. End of boom is lifted as deeper reefs are put in.
