This sounds like a fairly typical setup. One thing you didn't mention is chafing gear on the pennants. This is important to prevent them from failing due to rubbing and friction. A number of types available from the marine suppliers. I like the ones that are slipped over the line before the loop is spliced versus the ones that are split lengthwise and installed and tied on afterwards. Check that the chocks the lines are in don't have any sharp edges.
