Recommended Guide-Ons For a 20 Foot Pontoon Boat Loading and Unloading In River Currents


I would be using these guide on’s in a river current, sometimes strong. Will the guide on’s be strong enough for this application . Illinois and Mississippi rivers, a 20 ft pontoon


Helpful Expert Reply:

As you will be loading and unloading in the stronger river current I recommend using the CE Smith Roller Style Guide-Ons for Pontoon Boat Trailers # CE27672. These use rollers that will allow for your pontoon to load easier onto your boat trailer. These will fit trailers with frames or crossmembers that are up to 3" wide and 4-1/4" tall.

If you have a larger frame/crossmember a Extra-Long U-Bolt Kit # CE11416 will fit up to 3" wide and 5-1/4" tall. For an I-Beam frame the I-Beam Clamps # CE27682A will fit beams 2-1/2" to 4-1/2" wide.

The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27636 can also be used with the other guide-ons, but these are better for providing a visual reference point rather than loading in strong currents.
