It does not appear to have anything to hook a rope for tubing to, where do you mount a tow eyelet I don't think I should use the top eye on the rear of the toon that is used for the tie down for the trailer

I use a ski bridle.
Or depending on pontoon you could look at a ski pylon or a Turboswing.

Yeah but where are you hooking on the rear of the boat, on a normal boat you have the eyelets on the transom but nothing on a toon

I had a conversation with Suntracker and they said I could use the eyelets on the toons to tow a towable, So I bought the Y harness and have pulling my towable around the lake all summer, see conversation below:
Hi, my name is Carol French. How may I help you?
dan : I have a 2013 party barge 22' with a 60hp merc, can I hook up a towable to the hooks on the end of the pontoons?
Carol French: I checked with our warranty department about this. They handle the technical questions. Per them you can hook a towable to the ends of the pontoons.
dan : thank you Carol, have a nice weekend
