Default 2700 towing points

I just took delivery of my '03 2700 SCR yesterday. I am hoping to pull a tube on occasion but I cannot find any ideal towing point. The stern eyes are not easy to reach and I am not sure the cleats will be strong enough. Any 2700 owners pull tubes and, if so, where do you tow from? Thx

I've always thought about that...I had to tow a boat in that broke down and like yours...there are no towing cleats or pad eyes...what I did was make a briddle between port/stbd cleats and let the tube ride on that briddle.....

worked like a charm...

The cleats should be plenty strong enough if both starboard and port cleats are used.
