I'm just throwing out an idea here, would anybody be interested in lighted poles for their guide poles on the trailer? Something that maybe slides down in the existing guides at the rear and mounts up to the trailer lights? Or if there is no guide poles on the trailer, maybe a lighted marker? 100% waterproof & would light up the entire length of the pole?

Let me know your thoughts, just brainstorming right now. This would not replace your exisiting guide poles. Look similar to the picture attached...

I would think a light on top of the guide pole would work best. If it ran all the way down it would most likely get torn up/off with the boat hitting/bumping the lights.

Unless it's illuminated from the inside. (?)

These things will NOT get torn up by any means. The light will be encased in a very durable plastic. This will light from the bottom to the top. However, if it is slid inside of a current guide pole, then only what is above the guide pole will show. Also, the plastic used is not rigid, therefore it will not scratch or cause any damage to a boat.

You wouldn't be able to call them guide poles anymore. Maybe just marker poles.

I don't know how it'd be legal to tow with it if it's the entire poll? I don't know, I've seen some tractor trailers that are basically Christmas trees, but still.

I bet my wife could destroy one no problem. I dont like to let her drive the boat on to the trailer, but sometimes have no choice. Its better than watching her back the trailer in.

I have to agree with walker, things can easily go wrong while loading and i dont see any plastic that could withstand a boat hitting it over and over again that wont crack or at least scuff up the boat a little. And like i said there are already lighted posts out there, i had them on my last boat trailer, they had the lights on top of the post and hooked up to the regular trailer lights but the still would crack every now and then.
