CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - CE27670

  • Boat Guide
  • Post-Style
  • 22 Inch Tall
  • CE Smith

These guide-on posts make it easy to load your pontoon boat onto your trailer. They attach to the rear of your trailer and extend out of the water, providing a visual target to center the boat's pontoons around. Mounting hardware included.


Features:

  • Guideposts help you to center your pontoon boat as you load it onto your trailer
    • Extend out of the water to provide a visual target to center pontoons around
  • 1-1/2" Diameter, 16-gauge, pre-galvanized steel tubes are covered with 2" PVC piping for strength and durability
  • Install easily on rear crossmember of trailer frame with included hardware - no drilling required
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Quantity: 2 pontoon boat guide-ons
  • Application: trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall
    • 2 Extra-long U-bolt kits (CE11416; sold separately) are required for mounting on frames up to 3" wide x 5-1/4" tall
  • Post height: 22"


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


When your boat trailer has been backed down the ramp and is partially submerged, these 22" tall guideposts that are mounted at 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 galvanized steel support posts mount horizontally on top of or below your trailer's frame rail. Just slide the posts into the boat guide supports and secure the posts so that the distance between the bunks correctly matches the width of your boat.


Pre-Galvanized Steel

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

I attached these pontoon boat trailer guide ons yesterday. They made a huge difference when I trailed our 20' pontoon boat. They are more substantial than I expected and mounted easily in about 10 minutes with all included hardware. E-trailer web site was very user friendly and they shipped immediately. 275897

I painted these first and then put the pvc tubes on and then installed them on the trailer. My family has loaded the pontoon boat on the trailer twice now with no problems. Before these it would take three or more chances; should have gotten them sooner. They are heavier and better made than I was expecting. Worth every penny. 141260

Bought two sets for my pontoon/trailer. Work well. I did put longer PVC on the rear post so I could see them on approach. Strong enough to hold in wind. I did make the mistake of driving up on one and bent it over. Was unable to "bend" it back, just went by a muffler shop and they were able to fix my error. Would buy again and suggest where there is low wind and no current. For stronger, I would go with full length system to insure no "misses". Good product....good value. 360494

The ordering was easy and quick. It arrived on schedule and it was easy to install. I did not use the product for a pontoon boat. I used it on my 22 foot off shore fishing boat trailer to act as a guide on the rear of the trailer when loading my boat. I did not use the tubing over the bracket. I installed rollers on the inside and mounted my trailer lights near the top of the brackets to keep them out of the water when loading and unloading the boat. It looks perfect and I know it will work well for my needs. 153606

I am very pleased with this product. These guides are really nice, well made, went on easy, and saved a ton of time. I used a slightly longer PVC pipe on the rear guides to help see them when the trailer was submerged. They're now 28" vs 22". Probably not necessary but I tend to overdo things. etrailer is now saved on my favorites for future needs. 486120

These Guide-Ons were the best purchase I ever made. When I drive our pontoon onto the trailer it does not even have to be perfectly straight, the boat is forced into place every time. 390860

It was always a hassle loading our tritoon without these guides, worked excellent the first time we loaded with them. They lined the toons up to the bunks on the trailer the first try!! I ordered these on a Wednesday and received on Friday. 422830

by:

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

These were replacement ones I had purchased earlier that folded the first time I tried to trailer my pontoon boat off the lake. I welded a cross beam to strengthen the new ones and they should come that way. I would not recommend these for a boat bigger than a small Jon boat. 782300

  • Are The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons Compatible With Tri-Toon Boat Trailers?
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Pontoon Boat Trailers - 22" Tall - 1 Pair # CE27670 will work just fine for a Tri-Toon. You would just install the second set on the outside of the middle pontoon instead of the inside. They would guide you onto all 3 of your bunk board locations.

  • Recommended Pontoon Boat Guide-Ons for Pontoon Boat Trailer
    The pontoon trailer guide-ons only come in a set of 2 as that is all that is needed, although you can add more if you believe that it is necessary. That all just depends on how confident you are about staying on the right track once you have started guiding your pontoon onto your boat trailer. You will want to position them on your boat trailer so that they span the open space on the underside of your pontoon boat (see attached picture). There are 2 different style of guides that you...

  • Should Post-Style Guide-Ons Be Installed on Inside or Outside of Pontoons
    You will want to install the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27670 on the inside of the pontoons (see attached image). This will be just as effective when trying to load up the boat so putting posts on the outside, which will also add to the trailer's overall width, just isn't necessary. Mounting them on the inside also allows for a cleaner appearance since they won't be visible once the boat is in place. The CE Smith # CE27670 includes two guide-ons so it will be all that's needed...

  • Should 2 Sets of Guide Ons be Used for Pontoon Boat Trailer
    Typically people install two of the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27670 on their pontoon boat trailer but it is really up to you. You can install as many or as few as you would like. Two sets would give you a really good idea where you need to be though.

  • Guide Ons for a 22 Foot Pontoon Boat and EZ Load Trailer
    Pontoon boats normally use guide-ons that mount in the center of the trailer, and even with the three pontoons on your aptly named Aqua Patio Tritoon having lifting strakes, the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Pontoon Boat Trailers # CE27670 should still work just fine. The strakes should not affect the posts and there looks to be plenty of space to fit the posts between the pontoon.

  • Overall Height of the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27670
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27670 that you referenced are 22 inches tall including the mounting brackets. Basically the top of the will sit exactly 22 inches above the frame of the trailer it installs onto. The PVC portion does not float or change height when submerged underwater.

  • Installation Location of CE Smith Post-Style Pontoon Boat Trailer Guide-Ons
    The Guide-Ons are designed to make loading a pontoon boat onto a partially submerged trailer easier, and are usually installed on the rear of the trailer. The top portion of the Guide-Ons would be visible above the surface of the water, allowing you to line up the boat with the trailer. Typically the front of the trailer would be visible above the water, so guide-ons would not be needed, but there is no reason you could not install them on the front if you wish.

  • Do Post Style PVC Boat Trailer Guide Ons Spin
    The PVC pipes of the CE Smith Post Guide Ons # CE27670 that you referenced do not spin. They actually have a slit cut into the bottom of them that lines up with a groove on the elbow fitting that prevents them from spinning. These aren't intended to be physical guides so much as visual guides.

  • What are the Dimensions for the Legs on CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons
    The legs in the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons, # CE27670, measure 15 inches on one end and 12 inches on the other end of the L-shaped leg. The white tube covers measures 18 inches without the caps. The caps by themselves measured 2 inches tall.

  • What Material is the Hardware for the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Pontoon Boat Trailers
    The hardware included with the CE Smith guide-ons # CE27670 are pre-galvanized. Pre-galvanized steel parts are stamped from a sheet of steel after it has already been galvanized. The edges of the pre-galvanized parts often lose their zinc coating during the stamping process.

  • What are the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons Made Of
    Yes, the pipe will spin freely on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons part # CE27670. I called my contact at CE Smith and they informed me that the pipes are made of a standard schedule 40 PVC. You are more than welcome to go to your local hardware store to get a longer set but we do offer these in 40" tall part # CE11339 and 60" tall part # CE11340. You can always just trim what you don't need off with a hacksaw.

  • Where Should the CE Smith Guide-Ons # CE27670 be Mounted
    When it comes to guide-ons, like the part # CE27670 that you referenced, it actually is all up to you. If you check out some of the photos that customers have uploaded on the product page you can see that some people have maybe 4" of space between the pontoon boat and the guide-on while others have it right next to the pontoon boat. They really are mounted according to preference.

  • Will the CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-On # CE27660 Fit on a Pontoon Boat Trailer
    The CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons, # CE27660, were not designed for pontoon boats, but you may be able to make them fit depending on the design of your trailer frame. Since most pontoon boat trailers use guide-ons inside of the bunks, you will want to make sure you have room for them with your boat on the trailer. It would be best if your trailer had a frame rail under the bunk boards that ran parallel to them. Keep in mind, these are guide-ons only, not bunk board supports. I spoke with...

The caps are PVC. This kit is designed to work with models CE27620, 27625, CE27640, 27645, CE27670, CE27740, and CE27760.

  • Will the Post Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers Provide a Secure Support Guide for my Pontoon Boat
    I spoke with my contact at CE Smith and she said that the 13 inch measurement is from the outside edge of the trailer frame. If your 2008 Sun Tracker Fishing Barge extends 11 inches past the outside edge of the trailer's frame on each side, the Post Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers, # CE27620, will still have enough extension to provide a secure support for the guides.

  • Will the CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-On # CE27660 Fit on a Pontoon Boat Trailer
    The CE Smith bunk style guide-ons # CE27660 were not designed for pontoon boats, but you may be able to make them fit depending on your trailer frame design. If you are only needing them for guide-on purposes, the CE Smith guide-ons # CE27670 may work better for you. This guide-on mounts to your frame rails that run perpendicular to the bunk boards, so you can mount them at the rear, middle or front of the trailer.
