CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - CE27648

  • Guides
  • Boat Guide
  • Post-Style
  • 60 Inch Tall
  • CE Smith

Guide-on posts keep your trailer in view when reversing down a boat ramp. Posts also provide markers on your trailer so you keep your boat centered when loading or unloading it. Install guide-on posts above or below the I-beams on your trailer frame.


Features:

  • Guideposts provide a visual indicator on your trailer to help you load and unload your boat
    • Extends out of the water to help you center your boat while loading
    • Keeps your trailer in sight when backing it down a boat ramp
  • 16-Gauge, pre-galvanized steel posts are strong and durable
  • White PVC pipes slide over steel posts so you can see your submerged trailer
  • Simple installation on I-beam trailer frames with included hardware - no drilling required
    • Clamps can be attached above or below I-beam
    • Posts can be adjusted up to 19" away from your trailer
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: I-beam trailer frames up to 4" wide
  • Overall height: 60"
  • Steel post dimensions: 39" tall x 1-1/2" wide
  • PVC pipe diameter: 2-3/8"
  • Quantity: 2 boat guide-ons


Guide Your Boat Into and Out of the Water

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 when loading. The PVC pipes also provide a visual aid to help you back your boat trailer down the ramp when you're unloading your boat.


Installation

The posts are simple to install. Slide the PVC pipes over the pre-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".


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.

Absolutely love this pontoon guide! Pontoons are a pain to load sometimes when windy but these made it so boom you glide right onto the trailer

Unfortunately my boat trailer isn’t a I beam, guess I missed that when ordered. Had to order the kit for a different trailer

Just pulled the boat today and my wife did great driving onto the trailer in the exact center. Really helps to see where the end of the trailer is when it is underwater. Was very easy to install and adjust.

Guides seem well made and were easy to install. The guide lights were somewhat hard to get the wires through the guides because of the crimping on the bends. Thanks Eric

Great product. Didn't use the i beam brackets. Fastened the square tubing inside the tubing on the trailer of my pontoon boat. Worked perfectly.

Guide-on's were as advertised. Straight forward quick and simple installation. Seem to be very sturdy. The option of mounting on the top or bottom of the I-beam trailer frame is a great feature.

Excellent product. Easy to install. Makes launch and recovery much, much easier.

It was fairly easy to put together, however I had to use the short bolts and that made it more difficult. The bolt needs to be 1/4 inch longer and have more threads.

  • 60 Inch Guide Ons for Boat Trailer With Rectangular Tube Frame
    The # CE27648 Guide Ons you'd looked at are designed for I-beam trailer frame members, from the photo you provided, it looks like your frame members are a simple boxed in rectangular tube. If that's the case, and the frame members aren't more than 3 inches wide and 4-1/4 inches tall, I'd recommend the # CE27640. These guide ons are exactly the same, but the mounts are designed for a tubular or C-channel frame like you show in the photo. You can see how the guide-ons are installed in the...

  • How To Determine Fit of CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27648 are universal fit boat guide-on designed for I-beam trailer frames up to 4" wide. The closer to the rear they are installed, the more they will assist with loading. That said, you can install them further forward if there is something on the frame mounted in the way. In regards to universal fit items, compatibility will be up to the installer.

  • Dimensions of Upright Included with CE Smith CE27648 Guide Ons
    The short leg of the CE Smith # CE27648 Post-Style Guide-Ons measures 21-1/2 inches from the end of the leg to the inside edge of the upright and 23 inches to the outside of the upright. I've shown these dimensions in the provided photo. CE Smith doesn't offer a replacement 60 inch upright, but they do offer a 39 inch replacement as part # CE27605PG

  • Will Ark Extreme Off-Road Trailer Jack ORJW750D Fit 3" Wide x 5" Tall Trailer Frame?
    It sure will! The Extreme Off-Road Swing-Up Trailer Jack w/ Dual Wheels - Sidewind - 10" Lift - 1,650 lbs - Zinc # ORJW750D you were looking at fits trailer tongues that are up to 3" wide x 6" tall so it will fit perfectly on your 3" x 5" trailer frame.

  • 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...

  • Why are CE Smith 60 Guide-On Kits Priced Differently
    Part of the difference in price is based on supply-and-demand, competitive pricing, and our price from the manufacturer. Although these have the same dimensions for the Guide-Ons both kits use different mounting techniques. The part # CE27640 uses U-Bolts which fit frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" (can be upgraded up to 5-1/4" tall frames with U-Bolt Kit # CE11416) while the part # CE27648 uses I-Beam clamps instead which are compatible with frames up to 4" wide. So even though they are...

  • CE Smith Guide-Ons for 2008 Bear Trailer Boat Trailer
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27648 are going to be for your larger boat trailers that will use an I-beam frame.

It also includes LED cap lights that will make your trailer more visible to other drivers as well as help you if having to load the trailer when it is dark. If your up...

  • Recommended Guide-On for a 19 Foot Sea Ray
    From what I could find, it doesn't look like your Sea Ray is excessively tall or anything, so the CE Smith 60 Inch Post Guide-Ons # CE27640 should cover you without issue. I will say, however, that this is designed for standard frames that are up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall. If your trailer uses I-Beams for the frame, the # CE27648 will basically be the same thing but attaches differently on the frame.

  • Recommended Guide-Ons To Keep 2009 20' Hurricane Boat Straight When Loading On Trailer

The # CE27610 will keep your boat straight while getting it loaded on the trailer via the rollers, where the PVC guide-ons like the # CE27648 you were looking at are only to tell you where your submerged trailer is and will not physically guide the...
