Was going to make some but thought might be faster to look here and clist for some cheap, used(or well designed "homemade"), boat guide-ons for a smaller, old boat trailer I'm fixing up. Don't have to be pretty, just functional! No new-in-box, "Deals", pls. Suitable for 1960's-13' alum. v-hull. Akron-Canton area. PM if you have something. Thx

Depending on how your trailer is constructed, and whether you have these materials on-hand...my first boat trailer I installed some galvanized uni-strut (kindorf) and adapters to form a "L" shape on each side of the trailer and then slid a piece of PVC pipe over top of the vertical piece. I didn't have much spare cash back then and had scraps of this stuff laying around from work. I'd guess my two horizontal pieces were about 3' each and the verticals were 2-3'. It wasn't the prettiest thing, but it was functional.

C.J. i have a set thats missing the bottom bolt on plates. It was shipped to me that way. I'd imagine, if you have a drill press and some metal, you could easily fashion the bottom plates.
At the time i bught them, i had no time to make the bottom plates.
I don't even have the boat i bought them for any longer.
They're probably 6-8 years old, but brand new. Never have been installed on any boat.
They are yours if you want them. P.M. me if you do.

Yep...for sure easier...

My horizontal pieces were on top of the trailer frame and I used some all-thread and a smaller piece of strut under the frame to "sandwich" the frame between them. Then bolted a right angle piece from the horizontal piece to the vertical piece.
