Interesting video. I'm surprised no one had the presents of mind to throw a coil of rope in front of the run-a-way. The rope gets wrapped around the propellers ... engine(s) stall ... boat stops.

I saw a run-a-way dinghy stopped this way once.

KaptainKen,

I think that depends on the engine's power - I know of a rib that got away, and they did try to foul the prop with a few lines, and they only managed to slow it down a little bit.
