  • 60 Inch Tall
  • CE Smith

Guide-on posts make it easy to load your boat onto your trailer and back your trailer down the ramp. They attach to the rear of your trailer and extend out of the water, providing visual targets to center the boat between during loading.


Features:

  • Guideposts provide a visual target on your trailer to help you load and unload your boat
    • Extend out of the water to help you center your boat while loading
    • Assist you in backing your trailer down the boat ramp
  • 16-Gauge, pre-galvanized steel posts are strong and durable
  • Black PVC pipes slide over steel posts so you can see your submerged trailer
  • Simple installation on rear crossmember of trailer frame with included hardware - no drilling required
    • Adjusts out to 13" from trailer
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall
    • For frames up to 5-1/4" tall, 2 extra-long U-bolt kits (CE11416 - sold separately) are required
  • Overall height: 60"
  • Steel post dimensions: 38" tall x 1-1/2" diameter
  • PVC Pipe diameter: 2-3/8"
  • Quantity: 2 boat guide-ons


Note: Check with your state Department of Transportation for restrictions regarding maximum trailer width.


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.

Comments
I love the rail holders and the guide post both. I had to put wood guide rods from one side to the other in the post to hold them straight but once I done that and got them tight they are wonderful. I love them and appreciate you following up. Only thing better would be if you included tubing in the package to use for that purpose instead of the wooden rods I had to use.

Solid product. Right out of the box you can tell this product is built to last. The metal is heavy gauge and the PVC coverings are well cut to fit. It went on perfectly and it’s not going anywhere. My only suggestion would be to add a couple self tapping screws and pre-drilled holes to secure the PVC to the uprights to prevent theft. I did this myself without a problem. 660804

It fit on the trailer well, I haven't had a check to try loading the boat from the water yet. 681940

These work really well. Extremely easy to install, probably 15-20 min total and all you need is a 9/16" deep-socket/ratchet. I put these on a galvanized trailer for my Yamaha boat and they look like they came on the trailer from the factory. The 5' height was perfect for the Yamaha, which sits quite high in the water. Gettting the boat onto the trailer was typically a challenge, but with these it just guided right on, first try! 561820

Bolted in in 30 min. PVC POLLS damaged in shipping but only cosmetic Clear instructions. (Pictures). Headed to the lake to see if my placement is going to work I'm going to add lights for my wife so night loading is better. Black polls are hard to see 283017

Exactly what I was looking for. Easily installed, good quaility. Now protecting my trailer from damage by making sure the boat is loaded exactly correct. Thanks 796021

Simple fast install, feels very solid. Since my boat trailer has bunk boards instead of rollers, I tend to float the boat onto the trailer. Throw a little wind or current and it becomes a pain to center the boat on the trailer. This should fix it just hope I left enough room to be able to get the boat off the trailer. 795761

Excellent quality. Built well. Works great for my 16ft Lund. Heavy winds on the lake I was great full these were in for a quick load up. Would recommend... 795065

The included mounting hardware was too narrow for the beams on my trailer, but the trailer itself had a mounting system. Of course the brackets on the trailer were too small and the bolts on the trailer were too big for new brackets. So after a little filing, it’s all mounted and looks great. I assume the product will work great when boats ramps reopen and I can get in the water. 790776

10 minute installation. Very sturdy construction. I purchased the pole pads which help keep the boat protected if you get a little sideways. Great product. 786838

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts

  • Can Post Style Guide Ons Be Used on the Front of a Boat Trailer
    Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers, like # CE27646 are designed to help you load your boat onto your trailer. Because the rear of the trailer is backed into the water, it makes it really hard to see if you're loading it straight onto the trailer. The top portion of the Guide-Ons that is above the water give you a visual reference, making it easier to line up your boat with your trailer. That being said, if you would like to add a second set to the front of your trailer, there is...

  • What is Size of Metal Square Tubing of CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27646
    The steel posts of the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27646 that you referenced are the standard size of 1-1/2 inch by 1-1/2 inch square. That should be the correct size for the opening on your trailer that you sent a picture of.

  • Is There a Replacement Upright for CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons
    Yes, there is a single replacement upright available separately for the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27646.

  • CE Smith 60" Tall Guide-Ons with U-Bolt Mounting Hardware for Haul-Rite Boat Trailer
    The 60" CE Smith Guide-Ons # CE27648 do come with mounting hardware for I-Beams, but this same system is available with U-Bolt mounting brackets as part # CE27640. If you'd like to have LED lights on top of the guide-ons then that is also available as part # CE27760.

  • Recommended Boat Guide-Ons For 24-Ft Pontoon Boat
    I recommend 60-inch Black guide-ons like the CE Smith, part # CE27646. I recommend going with the 60-inch because you can always cut the upright PVC to a shorter length if you wish. If you decide on 50-inch, you can check out part # FGB1500100, which is only available in White.

  • Installing Post Style Guide-Ons When Trailer Step Sticks Out
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 60" Tall - Black - 1 Pair # CE27646 will either be set at that fender width or you'd need to notch out your galvanized plate to get your desired width. A third option is to heat the metal and bend it so it fits around the ledge and then come back vertical which would of course void the warranty but would solve your problem without changing the trailer structure.

  • Trailer Guide-Ons For C-Channel Trailer
    The U-bolts that come with the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27646 are compatible with c channels like what you have on your trailer but they fit channels up to 4-1/4" tall. There is longer hardware available with part # CE11416 which fits channels up to 5-1/4" tall. That is the longest U-bolt hardware for the CE Smith Guide-ons available or any other Guide on at this time.

  • Available Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers
    There is no one set correct length of guide-ons for a particular boat since the length you need can vary depending on the pitch of the boat ramp and how much of the trailer ends up submerged. The design of the trailer itself also matters since this affects where they can mount. You may also have a preference for a longer or shorter set or for one type or another, such as a roller style like # CE27610 or # FBGR200101 or a post-style like # CE27648. You can see all guide-ons we offer...

  • Recommended Trailer Guide Posts for Bayliner Boat
    That's a pretty sweet boat you have and I recommend going with the 60 inch tall guide-ons which are tall enough to ensure you have excellent visibility.

  • How To Install Rollers On a Pontoon Boat
    It sounds like you are trying to bring the boat down closer to the trailer frame. I have personally not seen many setups that involve using keel rollers like the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10455G with a pontoon boat but if you have an idea in mind we do have these in various sizes. That said, I think the best option we can offer you to add a roller would be with the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunks part # DL21741 and the CE Smith Bolster Bracket for Pontoon...

  • Are the 75" Long CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons Offered in Black
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons are offer in both white and black but the black poles only come in a length up to 60" whereas the white are offered up to 75" long. Therefore, you could purchase the 75" long white poles with part # CE27636 and spay paint them black or you could just purchase the 60" long black ones with part # CE27646. Is is also important to note that the u-bolts that come with the black posts are a bit shorter than the u-bolts included with the white posts so if your...
