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 75-inch-tall guideposts that are mounted on the rear corners of the frame will stick out of the water, giving you two highly visible targets to guide your boat between for loading. The PVC posts 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 posts over the galvanized steel support posts. Then use the included I-beam clamps to mount the posts on the top or below the trailer's I-beam 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 inch.


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 mm) 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.

The clamps are galvanized and rugged. Two bolt lengths were provided so I had a wide I-beam I wouldn't be off to the hardware store. My 3" I-beam used the shorter bolts and they included washer and nylon insert lock nuts. The 90 degree bend metal box tubes are also rugged; didn't measure the wall thickness, but its certainly stiff enough for the job. PVC pipes and caps included. Probably took me 15 minutes to install and that's because I was fussy with the gap I wanted between the PVC pipe and the rub rail on the boat. The only blemish is that the tubes have black marks on them most likely from shipping as the metal box tubes are shipped loose they can bang around and mark up the PVC pipes. The hardware is bagged so there is very little chance of coming up short on the hardware. The tubes are long, and I do mean long, but with some of the steep boat launch ramps I use having that added length is a lot better than coming up short. Overall, it's a quality item and if you want all white pipes, be prepared to clean them up when you are ready to install them. Try some naptha first and if that doesn't do it, go to a mild ScotchBrite pad. I have not yet launched or retrieved my 20' Key West with these trailer guides in place, but I expect no problems whatsoever. 268971


Comments

Been a year with a dozen launch and retrievals will never have another boat on a trailer without them. Absolutely no problems with the hardware easy to adjust even after a year in and out of salt water and the amount of flex in the tubes is just right to keep the boat aligned on the trailer without impact. Excellent.

I ordered a set of ce smith boat trailer guiding post via phone, instead of online, because I had specific questions about the product prior to purchasing. My specific questions were answered by Heidi M who was familiar with the product. She took my CC information and processed the order successfully. I received the product via USPS free shipping (purchase was more than 99$) on-time as promised. This is my first time doing business with etrailer, overall I am very satisfied with etrailer service, website and personnel. Will definitely purchase from etrailer again, based on my positive experience, will recommend etrailer for friends and others. 598154

The trailer has been outstanding and I have towed my boat from Florida to Washington state and back and all over Washington State. The only problem I have with it is the surge brake which is manufactured in Atlanta. The diaphragm that keeps the outside air out of the brake fluid and is supposed to be glued to the filler cap keeps coming adrift and when it does that, the brake fluid squirts out of the breather hole. The manufacturer has been quite helpful and gave me two more caps, but the problem continues. So I travel with three caps and a tube of superglue! The brake fluid probably breaks down the glue. I check it daily when I am on the road and two caps are used for the 3300 mile trip to the far corners of the Nation. 674382

Very happy with guide on post! The brackets fit my huge 7.5 x 4.5 I beams on my trailer! This trailer hauls a 2001 Sea Ray 280 Sundancer that is 31.9 ft long and 9.5 feet wide. This kit works perfect and came with all the hardware I needed! 668308

I am very pleased with the trailer guides and the installation went well until I found that the inside diameter of one of the PVC pipes was almost one eighth inch more narrow than it should be. This pipe did not fit over the steel post of either guide. I ended up using a grinder to grind down just enough of all four sides of one steel post guide to allow the PVC pipe to slide down. This problem could have been found before shipping by simply trying out the fit before it was boxed. I have been pleased with e-trailer for previous purchases and am pleased with the delivery and overall quality of these guides; however, I should not have had to make major modifications in order to compensate for a manufacturing defect. 322434

Review from a similar CE Smith Post-Style Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


They were great quality, well built, very sturdy. However they were not wide enough. I'm using them but only about an inch of the guide post touches my trailer's I-beam. I have to be careful not to bump them too hard when loading the boat or they move. Also, the U-bolts were too short for my trailer's I-beam so I had to discard them and purchase longer bolts and make some plates to go under the i-beam. Otherwise I am very pleased with them. I mainly needed them to help when backing the trailer and they work great for this. 668579


Comments

The U-bolts included are compatible with frame members up to 4-1/4 inches tall. If the frame is taller than that, up to 5-1/4 inches tall, a larger U-bolt set is available as part # CE11416

Great product. I bought two sets. Shipment was extremely fastttttt. I glued the PVC cap on and ran a stainless steel self tapper on the inside of the PVC so they don't blow off when trailering unloaded even though Anna @etrailer said they SHOULD NOT...........I don't like the word SHOULD!!! 521853

Review from a similar CE Smith Post-Style Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


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

One side of Kit non functional due to manufacturing error. PVC tube too small to fit over square metal post. The light Kit looked nice, but the wire was too short to fit down and out of the 75" tubes. Waiting to hear from Company as to what happens next. 264905

Review from a similar CE Smith Post-Style Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


It has been a year and the guides still look great and work great. We used them a bit different. They were installed on a boat lift. When bringing in the boat they guide it in and keep it from hitting anything on the dock that might damage the boat. They also help hold it in place while the lift brings the boat up. It really works well. 273604

Review from a similar CE Smith Post-Style Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


Received the 2 sets of guides posts in good time and in good condition. When I assembles the posts on my trailers I found it was impossible to "slide" the pvc posts over the ends of the galvanized mount posts. I tried to call customer service and was put on hold and told I was 16th in line. After a half hour of waiting I gave up. I tried calling the manufacture for help (C E Smith Company) and got a dead end in their phone system. Finally frustrated I used a heat gun to soften the ends of the round PVC tubes and then was able to force them over the square metal posts. I think the manufacture needs to have better quality control and test whether the parts fit. 430625

Great products....the posts, lights, and plug all were shipped quickly and easy to install. Finally have my lights up high and out of the water. I used 3 wire extension cord to run uncut lines from the lights to the plug at front of trailer. Should protect against corrosion issues. Pictures of my install are attached. Thanks 490407

This has worked out well. Lights and connections never touch the salt water. I did the same thing on the trailer for 25 center console.

The boat guides appear to be exactly what I need. I did a lot of research before ordering this product and the metal brackets are even sturdier than expected. It would take a major collision to bend these one-piece brackets. 60355

Quick delivery on the trailer guides, easy installation on my galvanized trailer, although the product fit perfectly, I was not sure if the steel parts were galvanized so I decided to clear coat all the parts. Not a deal breaker looks good. 479446


Comments

Overall pleased but had one issue with one guide bar collapsing where it bends, after a reinforcement was added seems to be holding up. Needs to be thicker material in that area.

Do you have a question about this Boat Trailer Part?


  • Boat Guide-On Recommendations for a 2017 Robalo Walk Around
  • Given the size of your 2017 Robalo Walk Around boat I recommend going with tall guide-ons such as the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 75" Tall - I-Beam Clamps - 1 Pair Item # CE27635 if the trailer has an I-beam frame. If the trailer does not have an I-beam frame then a 60 inch set with lights on top, # CE27760, is a great option as well. Based on the boat I would not go under 60 inches. I have linked a video of the lighted guides for you.

  • Choosing Boat Guide-Ons for 2010 Monterey 260 SCR's Boat Trailer
  • When choosing boat guide-ons, the height of the post is personal preference. Guide-ons come in a variety of heights to accommodate different boats styles and preferences of different people. Since you have a Monterey 260SCR, the 75 inch tall, CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons that you looked at would work well in proportion with the size of the boat. If your boat trailer has an I-beam trailer frame, you will want part # CE27635. These posts will attach the to trailer frame with I-beam...

  • I-Beam Clamps for Post Style Guide-Ons for a Boat Trailer
  • Yes, the I-Beam frame clamps that come with guide-ons # CE27635 are available separately. For one clamp you would need # CE27681G. They secure a 1-1/2 inch square tube to an I-Beam and 4 are needed per I-Beam. Or you could use # CE27682A for 2 sets. They fit I-Beams with width of 2-1/2 inches to 4-1/2 inches.

  • Would the Guide Ons part # CE27635 Fit a 4 inch Wide I-Beam
  • The I-beam clamps of the Guide Ons part # CE27635 that you referenced are confirmed as a fit on I-beams that are between 2-1/2 inches and 4-1/2 inches wide so the kit would fit your 4 inch wide I-beams.

  • Boat Trailer Guide On Recommendation for a Deep V Lund Boat Trailer
  • It sounds like the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27620 aren't wide or tall enough for your boat trailer. Since I can't recommend you bend the brackets a better option would be the # CE27635 which is similar but can adjust out an additional 6 inches on either side and will be 35 inches taller.
