Just bought a 2007 246 Bowrider and the tow ring is embedded into the hull. I had a 2004 192 Bowrider and the ring was away from the hull about and inch or so. Now, ropes won't stay on the ring when you stop the boat. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. Attached is the picture of the ring. The rope just isn't secure. Just sits on the ring when you are pulling someone and slides right off when you stop.
