I just wonder if there is a better method that a yottie here would know of or is this the usual method?
Definately a very neat / seamanlike approach!
It's probably going to be a bit fiddly to get the eye-splices to D rings exactly balanced on each of the Y branches. I might be tempted to just use bowlines here so you can adjust the bridle as things bed in. But not perhaps as neat.
