I am gona be meeting with one of the big top head honchos out at Lake Powell (Aramark) that is involved in plans for updating Boat Rentals. I heard from some of my friends that work there that one of the ideas is putting a winch out there. I want to try to convince him that a winch would be great but that a Sesitec 2.0 would be better!!!

I am gona meet with him in about 1 hour (i know this thread is last minute, just thought of it)

The biggest question i have is:
How do you get back up when you fall? can you grab the line as it comes around or do you have to swim back to the starting point or what?

i have had other friends ask me this and i don't know the answer as i have never ridden a cable of any sort... only a winch.

I am gona make these arguments
1. quieter motor
2. *** electric motor *** more enviromentally friendly *** (aramark is big on being green)
3.a. Though the initial investment is larger for the sesitec 2.0 it will save money in the long run because gas does not have to be purchased to run it
3.b. a winch, though cheaper will require a jet ski (another large initial investment and larger need for ga$... and pollutions) or a walkable beach/dock to the side which is inconvenient and may require more worker$ to run it to pull the line out each time.
4. sesitec is continuous ride and winch is one way
5. wakeboarding is becoming the main stream of watersports and something should be done to please that growing public
6. Antelope point marina has a winch... this will be the best way to compete.
(f.y.i. i really don't care too much if Aramark or antelope point does better on pleasing the wakeboarder community. i just want to help better the Powell wake scene in whatever way i can and hopefully be a major part of it.

also any other ideas you have would be appreciated
