About those forces... you are splitting your weight in half because you are using two attachment points and the downward force on each beam is equal to that. But something else is going on at the eye bolts, the holes they screwed in to and the hammock suspension. In your application it isn't much to be concerned with because you are not departing too far from vertical. But as the 'drop angle' starts departing from true vertical you start generating extra. Where I would start worrying about it is when that angle starts getting large, especially if someone starts trying it with a single attachment point.
