The front D ring usually has a square handle.
I would use the ring rather than the handle for a painter.
Best solution is 2 separate doubled independent lines from right and left rings to the front ring, and a ring between the doubled lines. Your boat will stay tied even with 2 rings broken, and the line stress is distributed on the three rings.

Maybe I should have more faith in my re glue work, not an edge has raised on any of the mounts since re installed.
Okay I would be totally freaked out to return to my boat, after a dive, and find it barely holding in place. Still there are two points holding it, as the bitter end is clipped to the anchor crate. Scary thought none the less.

That is effectively how mine is done, since there is a knot in the end that the anchor rope clips to it creates two independent lines going to each d-ring.

Also using the right anchor line that has stretch to absorb the shock is a good thing.
