Well, Mike it sounds like you have about made your mind up to get the skeeter.  Are you still thinking about it or are you gonna keep looking.

Just got home from looking at it. It’s a done deal! Boat overall is in good shape. Needs a little love but nothing I can’t handle. I’ll be the second owner. 2011 skeeter zx200 with a Yamaha vmax 200 2 stroke. Minn Kota 24volt ultrex with 2 helix 10’s linked together. Power head was redone this summer with paperwork. Seller seemed pretty honest. We went all over it and he showed me how everything worked then we went for a test drive. I mad a lap around the lake and he encouraged me to run it as much as possible. We put it back on the trailer and made a deal. I bought it under my budget so I’ve got some cash leftover for… rods, reels, who knows!

Congrats on the boat, I'd use the cash saved for a good going over, fluid changes, tune up, etc. We need more pics.

So my ultrex has Bluetooth on it. Can I buy a remote and pair it up? I like to let my wife fish the bow but she doesn’t want to run the trolling motor.

Yes, there is a remote and there's also an app for your phone.

Thanks. Just downloaded the app and it works good. I wonder how bad it will kill the battery on my phone? If it would be better to just buy the remote?

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S10 and it does fine, but I use and prefer the large remote with touch screen. I've used the app  at most two or three hours and not a lot if difference in battery strength. I suppose if I let my phone hang where it could be more quickly accessed, I might use it more. I use the Auto Pilot, Record Track, and Spotlock most of the time and for me the remote is a lot more convenient.

I had an early I-Pilot, no bluetooth, I just hung the remote around my neck so it was right there if I needed it, worked well.

I ordered the remote. Figured it was easier than digging out my phone every time I want to make an adjustment. Besides one of the best parts about being on the water is not looking at your phone.

Took her out for a few hours on Rayburn yesterday. Boat ran fine. Wife caught a couple small bass. I caught nothing. It’s going to take some getting used to all the boats. When I was in Maine there obviously were other people fishing but this is on another level. Holy smokes! One thing I didn’t understand. There was a tournament out of the same landing we used. We fisherman’s not far from the landing. At about 10:50 a.m. all kinds of boats raced for the landing. 20 or 30 minutes later they all left again and headed back down lake. Why? Mid day weigh in?

Mike, sounds like the tournament was a Big Bass event.  Prizes are awarded through out the day as established by certain cut off times for morning vs afternoon catches.

Or a MLF format type of event.
