Here is a video of my ETNZ at Humber Park Pond using a pair of Sunglasses with a built-in camera. The beauty of the system is that the camera is sighted with your eyes which leaves your hands free. $20 US on-line shipped.

True, but you have to be looking AT the boat

Most definitely. If you follow your model side by sideONEMUSTLEARNTOCRABWALK or simply follow behind, other than that stay put and keep the boat in focus.

Crabwalking is harder than one thinks specially when the boardwalk your on is slippery with Canada Goose droppings. That is why you see the boat sometimes disappears from view because of what I was trying to avoid.

I made this how to video in response to a few people asking me to explain how my Closed Loop Sheet Line Rigging works on my ETNZ.

Viper’s ETNZ 1 M R/C Yacht Offshore Run 20111208. This run was to test the upgraded winch and rudder servo set-up using my 2.4 G TGY9X / Fly Sky FS TH9 radio. The back drop of this offshore run is the City of Toronto skyline.

You are right the winch set up is useless. Did you solve it with a continuous loop set up? If so a photo will be a help.
