Who has used a winch?

Anyone here ever do any riding on a winch? Guy I've been out with in Madison lately has developed a pretty cool winch system. I haven't had a chance to get a run with it yet, but I find the idea intriguing. I like the idea of making quick runs in areas not accessible to boats, or where boats are banned. I suspect that if a cop caught me trying to ride on a pond in a public park it could turn into a hassel. For that reason the electric seems like it would be superior to gas. Quiet and high amounts of instant torque seem like a great combo. I'm interested, but would like to hear of other people's experiences.
This is the link to the system I'm hoping to try out

Just did. I still think the gas engine could draw unwanted attention when trying to screw around on public land. Have you used one?

I have one, and have used it in a few public places. Haven't had any problems with authorities yet, but we get in, get a few tricks and get out.

The main reason we have it is because we have a private pond with a few rails in it, and the winch is perfect for that.

Batteries suck.

If you were going to use it someplace where AC power was available and no batteries required, that would be cool
