Basically, you want to put the slings under the two transverse bulkheads. The forward one is the forward end of the head compartment and would line up with the aft edge of the foredeck hatch, as Faster has pointed out. The aft one should go under the aft end of the salon settee. In the drawing on the right, it would line up with the vertical post at the forward end of the quarter berth/nav console. On the outside it will line up with the aft tip of the keel's bottom edge and the mid-point of the cabin port shown in the drawing...

If you're going to err with the sling placement... err towards the center of the boat, rather than towards the bow or stern, as the boat will probably handle it better.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
