Mike's right, use the bow eye. I have used my B.I. Fly High for several years without any marks to the rub-rail. Using the bow eye allows the bow of the boat to take the strain rather than just the lifting ring.

If you really wanted to use the bow eye, there is a thread on here where the bow eye was connected to the lifting ring with a fabricated steel plate.
