Keep your small boat centered during the loading process, despite wind and waves, with these bunk-board-style guide-ons. Corrosion-resistant guides are covered with marine-grade carpet and fit trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall.


Features:

  • Bunk-style guides support your boat and keep it centered while you're loading it onto your trailer
    • Tilt to accommodate hulls of various sizes
  • Support posts clamp onto top or bottom of trailer frame
    • Mounting brackets allow you to adjust the distance between posts
    • Pre-galvanized steel construction is sturdy and resists corrosion
    • Hardware included
  • Marine-grade carpeting lines bunk boards to protect your boat's finish

Specs:

  • Quantity: 2 bunk-style boat guides
  • Application: trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall
    • 2 Extra-long U-bolt kits (CE11416; sold separately) are required for mounting on frames up to 3" wide x 5-1/4" tall
  • Bunk board dimensions (each): 60" long x 2" wide x 4" tall

Adjustable boat guides can be fine-tuned to work with your boat and your trailer. The pre-galvanized steel support posts mount horizontally on top of or below your trailer's frame rail. Just slide the posts into the boat guide supports and secure the posts so that the distance between the bunks correctly matches the width of your boat. The bunk boards then tilt to conform to the boat's hull. Guides will help to center your boat during loading and to hold the boat during transport.


Pre-Galvanized Steel

Pre-galvanized steel parts are stamped from a sheet of steel after it has already been galvanized. The edges of the pre-galvanized parts often lose their zinc coating during the stamping process. Because of the thinness of the coating less than 1 mil and the fact that the edges remain exposed, pre-galvanized parts can begin to oxidize and rust quickly, so its recommended that they be primed and painted.

Video Transcript for CE SMith Bunk Style Boat Trailer Guide Ons Review

Today we'll be looking at the C.E. Smith 60 inch long bunk-style guide-ons for boat trailers. Part number CE27600. The CE Smith bunk-style guide-ons are the right on solution for loading your boat. For demonstration purposes, we have this set pulled slightly further out than our rear ones. Let's go over some features.

They're going to support your boat and keep it centered while loading. They tilt to accommodate hulls of various sizes. The uprights simply clamp onto your boat's trailer frame with no drilling required. The brackets also allow you to adjust your uprights' depth so you can accommodate a variety of boat sizes. The uprights themselves are made out of a pre-galvanized sturdy steel construction, so they're going to resist rust and corrosion. The bunk boards are covered in a marine-grade carpet to help protect our boat's finish.

All the hard ware you need to get these installed is included. Now let me go over 00:00:51 some features to go ahead and show you how to get it installed. As you can see, our boat already has rear guide-ons already installed. We're going to be installing some on the front, so let's go ahead and get started. Now the first step to getting our guide-ons installed, is we'll need to install the the U-bolts and the brackets here and at the back there. With our two-inch frame here, our U-bolts are going to go in an X fashion, like this.

If we had a three-inch frame then we would just go like this. We're going to set them in place, like so and we'll take our bracket, it's going to go in this position, with the two long ones facing toward the boat. We're going to line up the holes, then after we have that in position we can install our hardware. We'll be putting on a flat washer, followed by a lock nut. Now keep in mind everything we do here, we're going to do on the other side of the trailer. Now, with our front one loosely installed, let's go ahead and do the back one the exact same way.

Now we can grab two upright posts and insert them in the brackets. We're going to insert the short end, that's going to be the end without the holes, set them in like so. We're not going to fully tighten them down just yet. We're going to make sure that we have the correct distance between the two. Now, a good way to determine your desired length is you can grab your bunk board, bring it up to your uprights and put it in position. Obviously you don't want to exceed the length of the 60 inches and you want a little bit of overhang. I'd say that looks pretty good. You just want to make sure you have an even amount of overhang. We're going for about four inches on each side. Since we're good to go on the length between the two uprights, the next thing we need to make sure is we have the same depth on both sides. We're going to go right here before the elbow and tighten it down. It's going to be a 9/16ths socket wrench. You want to make sure and tighten these down evenly, that way it's got a nice snug fit. Now, with that one in place, let's go ahead and do the rear one. Now we'll just go right before the elbow, just as we did before, and tighten that down. Next, we can loosely install the swivel brackets on our upright post. This is going to help us line up our bunk boards. Now we've got two holes that we can mount our swivel bracket to. You just want to choose whatever works best for your application. We're going to go with the bottom one on both. I'm going to put it there, take my bolt, pass it through the other side, putting it through the hole, put on a flat washer and then a lock nut. Now, as I said before, we'll just loosely install it. I'll get my other one. Now we can grab our bunk board and mark up our brackets. Now, it's not a bad to get an extra set of hands when lining this up. That way the bunk board doesn't move on you. Now, we don't need to worry about marking out our holes because we're just going to remove the swivel brackets to install them on the bunk board. I'm just going to mark the inside edge here, just so I know where to line it up with the bunk board. I'm going to do that for each side. Now, with our swivel brackets removed, we can line them up on our bunk board where we had them positioned, and then drill out some pilot holes. The instructions doesn't say to drill out a pilot hole, but it's going to be way easier to get the wood screw in if we start a pilot hole. We're just going to use our swivel bracket as a template and drill our a pilot hole. Now, with our holes drilled out, we can attach our wood screws. Now we can reinstall our swivel brackets with our bunk boards attached. Now, before we tighten down our swivels, we'll want to adjust the angle of our bunk board to match the angle of our boat. I'd say that looks pretty good right there. Let's tighten them down. All right. I'd say we've got it. Lastly, we can install the caps to our uprights. They just easily push into place. That's going to complete our look at the C.E. Smith 60-inch bunk-style guide-ons. Part number CE27600.

I bought a 2007 16' Carolina Skiff for $3500 back in December. The dealer said there was nothing at all wrong with it and he went over it and winterized it. I finally got around to putting it in the water and saw that the bunk boards were in terrible shape, with one side rail guide-on falling off. I took it to a marina repair shop and was told it would be cheaper to buy a new trailer instead of replacing the bunk boards. I contacted Ashley at etrailer about buying a set of bunk boards and all of the brackets and hardware for it. $370.00 later I had a full set of bunk boards and guide-ons being shipped to me. I don't think I could find a new trailer for that price. It took longer to remove the old ones than it did to put the new ones on. About 3 hrs later I had a new trailer. These bunk boards and guide-ons fit my boat and trailer perfectly. Thank you Ashley and etrailer for great customer service and a very good product at a really decent price. 671941

The quality of the product looks good, but it is a standard trailer boat guide. It did not fit our trailer or boat. 692228

I am extremely pleased in how much easier it now is to trailer my boat after adding these to my trailer. 635749

Make retrieving boat so much easier. Now back the trailer in deeper and boat is centered perfectly. Way less cranking on the winch, but feet get wet cause trailer is back farther. I rather take shoes off or switch to boots than crank on the winch.Speeds up load time at ramp. Only down side is I had to buy longer u bolts because my trailer sides were higher than the stock bolts could accommodate. Cost me more money, cause they ain't cheap and I'm suck with 8 u bolts that I have no use for. They should allow you specify the bolt size you need based on trailer frame height. 696896

Product was an exact replacement for the one i have. This would be better for me if it was hot dipped galvanized or even better a stainless steel option. I sprayed these with spray zinc but that is not as good as hot dipped. the installation hardware was easy to use. The installation video was a good help. I'm very satisfied with the product. 675361

After a year these are still working great. They are much more durable than the OEM bunks. I have ordered and installed a number of products from etrailer. I have always been very satisfied with the products and the support.

Installed on the boat trailer for my 14 ft Polarkraft MV Jon boat now I can load and unload the boat with out having to wade into the water. . I do not know low long it will last in saltwater, it was pregalvanized and not fully galvanized, only time will tell . Only negative was no instructions on how far to place out guide bunks, but figured it out, 1 in on bow and 2 to 3 inches from stern of . boat can now power boat on trailer , and walk out on bow and not get feet wet. helps in loading in winds here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Excellent service from Customer Rep . 181456


Comments

with salt water use I am replacing my set that I installed almost 5 yrs ago as the rust rot out at the vertical bend where there is a indent, prior to that the bolts that hold the bunks in suffered from wood rot

I am impressed with the speed of shipment and delivery but have yet to apply to my boat trailer. Am looking forward to fixing the problem I've had with getting my boat centered on the trailer at the launch. Suggestion: sell just the brackets and save me the cost of the two-by-fours and carpet. I can do that myself at home. 347627

Quick shipping, great quality. I ended up using it as a step/board to walk on while docking: loading the boat without getting my feet wet! I’ve been using it for about a year now with no problems. 688628

Ok, so my EZ Loader trailer is not so EZ to load my 15' Smokercraft. I needed something, anything to help remedy the problem. The local boat shop suggested these instead of OEM Trailer Guides. So it took about 2 hours to put together and I have suggestions for anyone who is about to install these. 1. Go get a socket that will accommodate long bolts. A socket wrench is not going to cut it and you will scrape your knuckles trying to make it work. I used a spark plug socket and attached it to my drill. This absolutely cut my time in half! 2. If you have an EZ Loader trailer that is used for smaller boats (like mine), you will have no choice but to attach the brackets under the trailer. I wanted to attach it on top, but the only way to do so is to cut 6 inches off the horizontal portion of the steel "L" bracket. The reason is because the bunk board is in the way and you will only have 5 inches to work with. So keep that in mind. I just hope the height of the boards are tall enough when the trailer is in the water. 3. Call a buddy to help out! It makes life a lot easier. All and all, this wasn't that difficult to assemble. Again, I haven't put the boat in the water yet, but I am confident this will solve my problem of loading. 160986

My Son recommended etrailer, stating the products + shipping resulted in a "No Brainer return". Well, I will confirm this statement. This was exactly what I needed for my jetboat. I ordered Sunday, and received it Friday, week of Thanksgiving. Super fast. I now have a new establishment where I will be coming back for trailer needs. This particular product, good construction, and easy install with all the applicable hardware included. I shopped around, and for the price + package, this was the best deal. Thanks etrailer....... 454681


Comments

GM George. The year-after follow up on the bunk style guides. They have been the best thing I have bought for my boat trailer in years. Im 82 years old, and Im launching and reloading a jetboat by myself. They have made this such an easy task. They are good quality, were easy to install. I would purchase this product again in the future if the need arises again.

The very first thing I really liked about this product was seeing the " made in the USA" printed on the front of the box. the Boat / Trailer comb. I have , had to be backed a good ways into the water, to launch the boat, same thing of course , to reload the boat, these "guide ons" really made loading the boat a breeze, especially with a crosswind. the only negative thing about the whole installation / kit was, I had to use additional washers to complete the installation, otherwise, great kit , no pictures due to not wanting to uncover boat in the almost constant rain here. I would recommend this kit to a frend. 388950

Very happy with fitment and the speed of which I could install it. It took about an hour and 15 minutes. The side boards are in fact wood, and I recommend drilling pilot holes for the wood screws. Now for the negatives... Torque specs or the u-volts would have been appreciated for those of us that care. But most important would be the pivoting bunk mount. As seen in the photos, they are sheared off square. Rounded edges would be more appropriate as most kids around a boat are wearing clothing with little cut resistance. Someone sliding off the boat or getting their knee on it while getting in could really ruin an outing. I would have rounded them off myself, but I didn’t want to lose the galvinized finish. 540653

The bunks are working out just fine. The boat was difficult to get centered on trailer prior to installing the bunk guides now loading the boat is a breeze.

The bunk style guide ons were perfect for my needs. Installation was a snap and they look really good. I followed their recommendation and painted them (black) before installing. I used a couple of clamps to hold the boards in place so I was able to easily complete the project by myself. That also allowed me to drill the pilot holes without taking them back off. Much quicker and very easy. 724791

Very happy with this product. On loading of boat to trailer is much easier, especially with cross wind or current. I mounted these guides just touching each side of the boat. They work perfectly placing the boat precisely in the center of the trailer every time. No lifting or adjusting of the boat that is not sitting properly on rollers or bunks. SDM 718979

I have a 20 ft. Bayliner Trophy on an Escort trailer. The clamps that hold the uprights to the trailer frame are very strong. The uprights are a little short on the frame end and because of that I only have about 1.5 inches of contact on the 3" frame. It would have been nice to have full contact. Now my boat is about 1.5" off center and I have no adjustment on the uprights. I will use it like this for a while as it is fishing /boating season and I do not have the time to do what I really want, which is to get 4 pcs. of 3" X 4" frame material, weld half inch flat bar as a spacer on each end of the 3 X 4 material then weld that assembly to the outside of the frame which would allow adjustment in any way you would need it. It would be good if they would sell you a product that is a little longer, four inches for each piece would be good. Other than the uprights being short on one end it is a good product. Before you buy one of these guide on kits, measure the distance from the inside of the frame to the outside of your boat. 542002

After a year in freshwater my 16 Lowe loads great. I removed a shorter, factory installed guide and now can go fishing by myself. I can drive on the trailer even with a strong current. Well made, easy to install and well worth the cost! Ive dealt with etrailer for several years and have never had anything but exceptional service.

Do you have a question about this Boat Trailer Part?


  • How To Convert a Boat Trailer from Center Rollers to Bunk Rollers
  • Yes, it is possible to switch from center rollers to bunk rollers on a boat trailer. For this, you will first need to remove the center rollers and then you can install a set of bunk rollers, part # CE27710 along with part # CE10000G-4 to support the hull. Then, in order to support both the port and starboard sides you can use part # CE27600. I have attached a photo of a similar setup with bunk boards instead of bunk rollers for the hull. In addition to the above you will also need to...

  • CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-On Compatibility with Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • Yes, the CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 60" Long - 1 Pair # CE27600 can work on the inside of a pontoon boat. Based on the photo you may prefer the CE Smith 90-Degree Bunk Board Guide-On Kit # CE27600K90 which will includes marine grade carpet in two 12 foot long rolls for treated 2x4 boards of your desired length.

  • Pontoon Boat Guide On Recommendation for Trailer
  • For pontoon boats like your Sylvan Mirage 8520 we have the CE Smith Bunk Style Guide-Ons # CE27671 which is a similar setup that is designed for the insides of a pontoon. Check out the picture I attached to see what I mean. We also have a roller version of this too as part # CE27672.

  • Replacement Upright Bar Bracket for CE Smith Boat Bunks # CE27600

  • Bunk Style Guide-Ons for Triumph Boat Trailer
  • We carry a pair of bunk-style guide-ons for boat trailers, the 24 inch # CE27660 and the 60 inch # CE27600. These guide-ons are made from pre-galvanized steel which can oxidize so they would need to be primed and painted in order to do well in salt water. These guide-ons are for trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall and you would need longer U-bolts # CE11416 if your frame was up to 5-1/4" tall.
    view full answer...

  • Why Are Pontoon Boat Trailer Guide Ons Smaller than Other Boat Trailer Guide Ons
  • Due to the nature of pontoon boat trailers and the fact that pontoon guides like the part # CE27671 mount vertically and not horizontally you want shorter guides. Check out the picture I attached for more info.

  • CE Smith Boat Guide On For a Tandem Axle Trailer
  • The bunk board of the # CE27600 that you referenced is 60 inches long. That may be a bit of a stretch to get to fit around a tandem axle fender but you would need to measure yours first. Between the posts is going to be around 48 inches depending on where you drill the holes to mount the boards. A better option may be to install two sets of the # CE27660 instead. One before and after the fenders.

  • Will CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons # CE27600 Help Line a Boat Up On a Trailer In Windy Conditions
  • The CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons # CE27600 that you referenced will help you line your boat up on your trailer in windy conditions. As long as you aren't slamming into them they won't bend and will work well. The arms are made of galvanized steel so they are pretty strong.

  • What you can do is use bunk board kit # CE27600K75 and extra long u-bolts # CE11416 and obtain the wood locally to save a few bucks. We do not have a 6 foot kit. I pieced one together but it ended up being about twice the cost of using the kit and u-bolts recommended above.

  • Can CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27740 Be Used With CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons # CE27600
  • The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons, part # CE27740, and the CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons, part # CE27600, will attach to a boat trailer frame size of up to 3 inches wide x 4-1/4 inch tall. They both use the same type of mounting brackets that attach to the boat trailer frame. The post-style guide-ons do need to be mounted as far back on the trailer frame as possible and as close to the boat as possible. The bunk-style guide-ons have 5 foot long bunks that have to be positioned on your...

  • Clearance Recommendation for Pontoon Boat Guide-Ons
  • You should be just fine with the clearances you listed for the CE Smith Guide-Ons part # CE27600. 3 inches would be great for the horizontal clearance between the guide ons and the pontoons and 1-1/2 inches of vertical clearance would be just fine as well.

  • How to Adjust CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27600 to Keep Boat Centered
  • The CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27600 can be adjusted for the best fit with a given craft. As you noted, you can adjust their side-to-side spacing to help keep your hull's strakes from contacting the center roller brackets. Also, the Bunk-Style Guide-Ons can be set at an angle, with the stern brackets a bit further apart than the bow brackets. This will create something of a V-shaped entry way for the boat that might help get and keep the keel in the roller. A...

  • Recommended Bunk Brackets For Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • If there is no flex in the bunks with the pontoon boat loaded, you should be fine with the 1/2 inch clearance. If you are possibly hitting the frame of the trailer when traveling I recommend replacing the bunk brackets with taller ones like part # CE10161GA. This bracket sits on top of the frame of the trailer and are 8 inches tall, and 5 inches wide with 4 mounting holes that are spaced 1-1/2 inches apart center to center. This will give you options to mount the bunks at the height...

  • Bunk Style Guide-Ons for Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • The Bunk Style Guide-Ons # CE27671 are designed specifically for pontoon boats because they're shorter and install vertically. See the picture I've attached. However, depending on your trailer the 60 inch Guide-Ons # CE27600 that install horizontally may be better for you. Even though it isn't what we typically see.

  • Boat Trailer Guide-Ons Without 90-Degree Angle Bend
  • You are right that most boat trailer guide-ons are 90-degree types. Some, like the Fulton Galvanized Roller Guide-Ons # FBGR200101 and CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons # CE27600 and # CE27660 have a wider angle. All such items are shown on the linked pages.

  • Do Bunk Style Boat Trailer Guide-Ons have to be a Specific Distance from the Boat
  • For bunk style guide-ons such as # CE27600 the bunk board and boat should only barely touch if at all. There isn't a hard and fast rule that says it should be this many inches. But since guide-ons are not meant to support weight like a regular bunk you don't want it so close that the boat could damage the system, but they have to be close enough to help guide the boat on accurately. If it is as rough as it sounds like then I would say maybe 3 inches on each side would work. And if you...

  • Will CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons # CE27600 Work on an Aluminum I-Beam Trailer Frame
  • Provided that the widest part of the I-Beam frame is no wider than 3 inches and the overall height no more than 4-1/4 inches you could use CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons # CE27600 with the I-Beam frame. The fact that the frame is aluminum should not be a factor in this case.

  • Will CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons # CE27600 Work for Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • A bunk-style boat trailer guide-on like the 60-inch CE Smith # CE27600 could be used on a pontoon boat trailer. These bunks serve to guide you when trailering the boat.

  • Recommended Bunk Guides For 28 Foot Bayliner Trailer
  • For your 28 foot Bayliner trailer, I recommend the CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 60" Long - 1 Pair # CE27600. These are 2x4 bunk boards, but you could use 2x6 if you prefer. We don't carry that size board, but we do carry the carpet like # CE11349.

  • Will Bunk Style Guide-Ons Work with a 21 Foot Seaswirl Boat
  • There isn't a set boat length require when using the CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons # CE27600. The bunks themselves are 60 inches long and will help you to keep the boat centered between them longer than post style guide-ons would. This is especially helpful if you have a boat that tends to want to wonder at the front when loading it back on the trailer.
