    1 a mistake (most probable, IMHO)
    2 you need another strop to go between the 2 parts formed, with the block running along that
    3 when you reef you move the peak block from one side of the mid-way eye to the other (but then why's it on the back? Or, when you say "back" do you mean "top" - ie opposite side to sail?)
