Oddly enough, I've used it to tow other boats in that were broken down.

For what it's worth, and probably not much since people are slinging hatorade at dealers, my dealer encourages you to pull from the transom tow point.
Not to be a kill-joy, but that's the last thing I'd do. Lift rings are designed for pulling up, not back. They aren't reinforced for the direction you want to apply a load to them. I'd stick to the tower or pylon, whichever one won't put me on someone's bad side.
