    This took me about 2 hours to install. I had to adjust them later because my boat was wider in the middle than at the back & I had them too narrow at the back, but adjusting them took only about 15 minutes. This is a beefy set that should last a long time.

                  The greatest advantage for these guide ons is loading the boat in windy conditions. It eliminates any guess work and centers the boat while loading. I really am glad we purchased these guides. I even installed them myself.

                  Item was exactly as I ordered and shipment was fast. Item was easy to install but...only thing I unhappy with was after installing item, the bunk boards were still to far away from the boat (adjustment poles were in as far as possible). I fixed the problem with adding an additional 2x4 to the backside of the bunkboard. I recommend you install them very close up against the boat, 1/2in spacing on each side. (It worked best for me).

                      A:

                      Hello Tom,

                      My answer is based on you have a 4" high trailer frame. If the bunk board is attached in the top hole of the side support arm and the arm is attached to the underside of the trailer frame, then the height from the top of the 2 x 4 should be 23" from the bottom of the trailer frame.

                      Thank you,
                      Steve
