Couple of ways of doing it:

Flanged coupler (flange fits over tube and is bolted to the trailer rails)

U-Bolts over the tube to a plate on opposite side.

If you're launching in sea water, either try and get hot dip galvanized stuff or plan on replacing hardware every couple of years.

Thanks for a picture.
I have found similar U bolts in a box left in garage (it was box for original hook). Yes welding is not require now.
