I have a 1991 Barefoot 200 with a Yamaha Pro V 200 on the back of it. I am thinking of putting a throttle like the ones used on the inboard instead of the factory Yamaha one. Do you think that it would work? I know that I would have to do something with the trim button. Any suggestions?

You can easily do it, but as you mentioned you will need to move the trim...there are a number of foot trim and steering wheel trim arrangements available from go fast crowd.

Years ago when I had a Hydrostream the controls for the titl and trim were on the steering wheel, and the control for hydraulic transom (which moved the motor up and down vertically) was a 2-way toggle that was ahead of the throttle when it was all of the way forward. It allowed you to adjust it with your pinky while your hand was on the throttle.
