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 60" 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 Post Style Boat Trailer Guide Ons Review

Today we'll be taking a look at and installing the 60-inch CE Smith post-style guide-ons for boat trailers. Part number CE27640. Guide-on posts make it easy to load your boat onto your trailer and back your trailer down your ramp. They provide visual targets to center the boat between during loading. They also extend up and out of the water to make your trailer more visible. The uprights are made out of a 16 inch galvanized construction so they're not going to rust or corrode and with the PVC slipped on over top it gives you 60 inches of visibility. They adjust out as far as 19 inches to accommodate a wide variety of boats.

Now that we've gone over some features I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. We're here at the rear of our boat trailer and we need to loosely install our brackets. Our brackets or our U-bolts are going to install in an X fashion like this. If it was wide we'd just install them a normal way like this. What we're going to do is take the lower portion of our bracket, it's going to be this right here, and we're going to put it underneath our frame here and it's going to go, we're going to take our flat one first and go like this. So, we'll do that first.

Then our other one is just going to install right on top of it. The one with the arched point in it. Then we'll grab our included hardware. We'll put a washer on first along with our lock nut. Get one started there.

Then we'll get one started on the back. Then we'll take our other one, like I said before, and just go right over top. Keep in mind everything we do here we're just going to repeat the same step on the other side. Now we can go ahead and put on our uprights and our PVC portion. We'll take the short end which is going to be this right here and we're going to slide it right here. We've still got it loosely installed.

Now we can grab our PVC and we need to make sure that the notched portion, which is this right here, is pointing downward because it's going to fit on our upright over this notch here. As we're working it down we'll make sure that the notch lines up, right there. Now lets go ahead and loosely tighten our U-bolts. While doing this, this is going to make it easier to adjust our posts to fit our boat. Then we're going to kind of guide our upright a little bit closer to our boat. With that loosely tightened down we can go ahead and adjust our posts to fit our boat. Typically you want it to be about an inch away. That's what's going to be easier for loading your boat. Then we can go ahead and tighten it the rest of the way down. The last thing we can do is put on our end caps. All right. That's going to complete our look and install of the 60-inch CE Smith post-style guide-ons for boat trailers. Part number CE27640.

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.

My wife and I received our item very quickly. The product is very high quality and we have installed it on our boat. The operation was very simple. Very helpful in launching boat. The guides enable you to ascertain at all times where the vessel is relative to the dock ..... especially necessary on inclined launching ramps which we have here on Lake Erie where we live. Would highly recommend the company and the product. 409189

Guide-ons that we needed for our boat lift. Boat lift manufacturer only offered a flimsy set. These are solid and wil hold up to many summers of boating fun. I had to order the extra long u-bolt kit because frame was over 5 inches tall. Make sure you measure your frame--u-bolt kit that comes in the box only fits 4 1/4 inch frame. 219054

The package arrived with the outer box torn in one area but the inner box & items were not damaged. The hardware that came with the guides just didn't fit my trailer, but I was able to use the existing u-bolts that were still in pretty good shape to attach the new guide poles that replaced rusted out, 6 year old OEM guides on my trailer. Installation was easy, about an hour 146567

Running into issues with the install. Unfortunately your customer service tech was not too helpful, courteous but not very helpful. I have a Triton trailer, tandem axle, sidesteps in front & behind wheel fender. Doesn't appear to be a good place for the install unless half way up the boat. Any recommendations on the install? Previous customers with Triton trailers? I don't prefer "cutting" a hole or notch into my fender as the tech recommended. Thanks for your response. 463367


Comments

Anthony,Thank you for your review.I have contacted CE smith and the only way to install these guide-ons on your Triton is to drill two holes through the rear step so the mounting bracket can sit on top of the step and the u-bolts will go around the frame. It cant go under the step because it is too wide and the post would be too far from the boat. I hope this helps.

As usual, excellent customer service from etrailer - they represent the best of what made America great. The CE Smith products are made in USA (North Carolina) and are also great values, although I dont understand why they cant galvanize parts after they're cut, drilled, and shaped instead of before (this is termed "pre-galvanizing" and means the part will still rust and corrode where it was cut or drilled). I suspect the bean counters and not the product engineers made that call. After reading the "not appropriate for review" guidelines, I realize that my comments may not pass, but if you dont want to know, dont ask. 342639

Haven't tried these out yet but did get them installed. The PVC tube was extremely hard to get on. I had to beat it with a hammer and piece of wood and the slit didn't line up properly so that was a bummer. No way to take it off it's so tight. It actually cut into the PVC on the 4 corners so it will have to be cut off if ever taken off. That is disappointing. We will see how it works when I go to the lake but I'm assuming it will work as it should. 357915


Comments

They work but mine hit a tree branch and bend them down, I can bend them back up but they just seem to move around a lot. Not real solid but I still like them.

Easy installation, sturdy and very well made. Haven't put them to use yet, but I know they will make a big difference in the ease with which I can return my boat to its trailer. I may purchase the lighting kit if I start fishing at night. 183596


Comments

I have relied on these guide-ons to keep my boat aligned to my trailer many times over the past year, especially during windy days. They are well made but I have still managed to bend them a little now and then by exerting more pressure than they were designed for. However, a little friendly persuasion put them back in place without too much effort. Good product. I would not want to be without them.

After reading other reviews I wasn't sure about the height...but it turns out 60" was perfect for me. I mounted them below the frame and I have a taller hull than the picture, so mine don't stick up quite that tall. They are super easy to install, and provide great targeting lines for whoever is trailering the boat. I am now rethinking the light kit on top, just because other vehicles on the road have a tendency not to look down at the trailer lights, so they don't see the turn signals as well. I included a picture taken the day they were installed (not great quality). 141149

Good product I should of called service dept and ask some questions since my trailer was made differently and had step plates which are in the way of using brackets as they show here. My fault I did not look closely enough; but I will be able to use them and make them fit my need. I have done business here before at this site and always been happy with my results of my purchases. Good people. 203762

My experience with etrailer.com was very good. I found the parts that I needed. The price was better than a couple other places that I checked.

Now, if I can do my part and get the parts installed as promptly, I will be ready to go fishing! (I foresee no problems). Thanks etrailer 601586

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts
Do you have a question about this Boat Trailer Part?


  • Choosing Boat Trailer Bunks versus Guide-Ons for Trailering in Rough Waters
  • Considering the rough water where you boat, I suggest you consider carpeted bunks or roller bunks. Bunks will do a better job than guide-ons at actually controlling the boat's motion while you're getting it up on the trailer. Guide-ons are really intended to provide a visual cue, but not really for actually controlling the boat's movement as it is trailered. As soon as the hull makes contact with the bunks it will begin to stabilize the craft's movement. I have linked our main pages...

  • What Size Trailer Guides are Recommended for a 22 Foot Sea Ray?
  • For your 22-foot Sea Ray, I suggest using the 60-inch tall CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons, # CE27640. Posts of this height are going to remain visible while your trailer is partially submerged, making it easier to guide your boat. These guide-ons use white PVC pipes which slide over the steel posts for enhanced visibility in the water and are installed with U-bolts so you can avoid drilling. I've attached a link to a video review of this product for you to take a look at.

  • Will CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons Attach to I-Beam Trailer Frame
  • The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27640 that you referenced will fit trailer frames up to 3-inches wide and 4-1/4-inches tall. For trailer frames up to 5-1/4-inches tall you will need their extra-long U-bolt kit # CE11416. The linked photo shows a typical installation on an I-beam type trailer frame.

  • Installing Boat Guides # CE27640 on Hydraulic Boat Hoist
  • The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27640 adjust out to a maximum of 13 inches from the rear crossmember of the trailer or in your case from the bunk frame. The application is for trailer frames up to 3 inches wide x 4-1/4" tall. For trailer frames up to 3 inches wide x 5-1/4 inches tall you will need 2 extra-long U-bolts kits # CE11416. Each set contains four pieces so you will only need one. I have included a link to installation details.

These square tubes are separate from the 60-inch PVC pipes that are included in the kit. From the middle of the bend to the end of the horizontal tube the measure is 21-inches.

There is a 50 inch tall model from Fulton, # FGB1500100. And The 60 inch one, # CE27640, could work if you trimmed some length from the PVC pipes.

The # CE27640 will install on your boat trailer with the included U-bolts and will not require drilling. In addition to the 3 inch width of your trailer rail, you will also want to know the height of the rail.

  • The specs for the CE Smith LED Light Kit for Post-Style Boat Guide-Ons # CE27656A note these lights fit on 2-inch diameter posts, but this is incorrect. The lights have an inner diameter of 2-3/8-inches which allows them to fit fine on posts like # CE27640. I went to our warehouse and measured both items. The light inner diameter and the post outer diameter match up at 2-3/8-inches. I will request the correction to this error. Thank you for catching it. I also measured the length of...

  • PVC Guide On Recommendation that Uses Lower L-Bracket part # CE27605PG
  • Instead of trying to piece together components to fit the brackets part # CE27605PG so that you end up with a guide on setup it would be much easier to just go with the part # CE27640 which comes with the guide ons and install hardware. The pipe diameter of this though is 2-3/8 inches. For replacement hardware you then could use the part # CE11416 too.

  • How Far Away from the Boat Should Upright Guide-Ons Be
  • When you set up a set of guide ons like the part # CE27640 you wouldn't want them to contact both sides of the boat at the same time. You would want an inch or two of clearance between the boat and the uprights. With the appropriate amount of clearance your boat that is wider in the middle wouldn't be an issue.

  • How to Choose Between 40 Inch and 60 Inch Boat Trailer Guide-Ons
  • You could always go with the taller 60 inch guide-ons, # CE27640, and trim as needed. But if you go to different places to use the boat, you never know how much of the trailer you will need to submerge and may find that the 40 inch would be too short in some cases. You would want the top of the guide-on taller than the boat as well (when loaded on the trailer). I have linked the installation instructions for you.

  • Can Boat Tail Lights Be Installed On CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons
  • We do offer brackets to mount lights on the 40 inch CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons like part # CE27620, or the 60 inch version, part # CE27640. You can use the CE Smith Light Mounting Brackets, part # CE27650A. The heavy-duty brackets attach to the guide-ons and extend the lights 7-1/2 inches from the posts. They help keep the lights out of the water so they remain safe when loading and unloading. These brackets come with the mounting hardware. If you are interested in replacing the...

  • Grounding Trailer Lights Mounted to PVC Guide-On Posts on Boat Trailer
  • If the trailer lights you mounted to your post-style guide-ons like # CE27640 ground through their mounting hardware then you will indeed need to add a ground wire from each assembly and attach them to a clean bare metal surface. Length isn't normally an issue but since you plan on running the ground wire all the way to the front of the trailer it will be a good idea to use a higher gauge wire for this application. Using 10 gauge wire should do the trick.

  • Recommended Trailer Guide-Ons for Classic Sailboat
  • You are correct in stating that the guideposts on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 60" Tall # CE27640 will only adjust out to 13 inches from your trailer. The mounting brackets used will not be able to provide any additional length. If you need a bit more room and are okay with taller guideposts, I recommend the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons - 75" Tall # CE27636.
