marine rope assistance

A few weeks ago, we bought a couple of innertube-y towable things that came with the tow rope, but I’m completely at a loss as to how it attaches to the inflatable, or to the boat. The tube has a cover with a loop made of strap material, and the two ends of the tow rope have loops spliced into them. How do I deal with this? I can thread the whole rope through the loop for one end, but what do I do for the other after I’ve done that? I can’t pass the tube or the boat through the loop!

Ah! From that setup pictured above, feed the rope on the opposite side of the strap through the eyelet on the end, pull it through until you have a large loop, put the tube through the large loop, then pull it taught.
