Guide Your Boat Into and Out of the Water with Ease

When your boat trailer has been backed down the ramp and is partially submerged, these 40" tall guideposts that are mounted on the rear corners of the frame will stick out of the water, giving you 2 highly visible targets to guide your boat between for loading. The PVC pipes also provide a visual aid to help you back your boat trailer down the ramp when you're unloading and loading your boat.


Installation

The posts are simple to install. Slide the PVC pipes over the pre-galvanized steel support posts. Then mount the posts on the top or below the trailer frame, as close to the rear corners as possible. Adjust the posts so that the distance between each post and your boat is less than 1".


Pre-Galvanized Steel

Pre-galvanized steel parts are stamped from a sheet of steel after it has already been galvanized. The edges of 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 it's recommended that they be primed and painted.

Video Transcript for CE Smith Boat Trailer Post-Style Guide-Ons Review

Today on our trailer, we're going to be taking a look at the CE Smith Post Style Guide Ons for Boat Trailers 40" Tall in Black, part #CE27626. This is going to look like once it's installed. You can see it's a nice large piece of PVC pipe. It's going to go around some 16 gauge galvanized steel that will prevent rusting. It's going to clamp onto your trailer with a no drill design. That will extend out 13" from the outside of your trailer frame to the inside of our tubing. These are going to be great for when you're loading your boat up by yourself and you have it in the water you can actually see visually where you want to line your boat up to set it on your trailer. Let's go ahead and show you how to install them. We're going to have 2 different style U bolts.

One's going to have this little notch in it. It's going to allow us to pass over our top for our criss cross design. We'll set the flat one on our frame rail first. Then in the diagonal we're going to lay the other one with the notch in it across the top. Then, we'll take our galvanized bracket.

We're going to slide it into place depending on the width of your trailer or which side you want it to go in or out. Take our flat washer and a nylon lock nut and put them on the criss cross so it will hold it up. Once we have them loosely started, we're going to run them down until our bracket just touches the frame. We're going to want to make sure we center it up. You want to make it to where it's still going to be loose enough to slide around. We're going to take our bracket, the side with the notch is going to go up. I'm going to loosely slide it into to position.

We can take our piece of PVC that has the notch cut in it as well. We're going to line that notch up with the one on there. We'll set our distance from our trailer about an inch or so away, maybe an inch and a half. Once you have it in the position you'd like it in to your liking. When you're adjusting this you want to make sure that the widest part of your boat is going to be able to pass through these easily and not scuff it on the sides. We'll go around and run these down in a criss cross pattern. That's going to complete our install. That's going to do it for our look at and install of the CE Smith Post Style Guide Ons for Boat Trailers 40" Tall in Black, part #CE27626 on our trailer..

My trailer and boat disappeared behind my truck while towing it. These guide-ons will not only assist me in loading from the water, but combined with the light mounting brackets, I now have a visual in my rear mirrors while I'm driving. Installation was a breeze! I invested in an electrician's snake, that aided tremendously in passing the wires down the PVC posts and staying out of the angled tubes. 639823

This was my first experience with buying from trailer and was not disappointed. I purchased a set of 40” Heavy Duty Black Post-Style Guide-Ons for my Tracker Pro-170 bass boat and item was received exactly as described on the web site and shown in the videos. The posts were incredibly easy to install (thanks to the instructions included and the web site video). Outstanding customer service and product support! The post guide-one are excellent and perform superbly in assisting trailering of my boat. 611228

I ordered these to make it easier for my wife to guide the boat on the trailer and make sure it didn’t drift with wind or currents. They worked excellent. Boat loading was less stressful for her, and when we pulled out it was perfect on the trailer. When I got home I noticed the wax on my boat was scratched. On land the posts were taller than the boat. In the water the rear of the trailer was lower. I plan on going to 60” vs 40”. Something to consider if you are considering these. 697169
