So by Y method, you mean setting it up like in the video? Water knots for the oar tower loops and then overhand on a bight in the center of the strap to create a loop where the winch hook attaches (bottom of the Y)? I'm assuming the bottom of your Y loop extends just barely out from the front of the raft?
Something like this? (Please excuse my crude drawing.)
