Had my guide posts replaced with newer Ramlin style possibly from 14-18 era. They need trimmed down some. How high are they typically above the side of the boat? Right now mine are about 42”. I’m thinking they should only be about 15”?

Both of those are real good looking 93’s. Sounds like a silly question but cutting 30” off a guide post just Sounded ridiculous. Gregg, I was thinking about those same wheels on my 93 but I’m too nervous to deviate from the originals.

The wheels were not that expensive. Remember the "originals" can rust. These won't
