Self-Driving Boats Anyone?

Would you consider this if it became available?

Re: Self-Driving Boats Anyone?

I can see it now, self driving power boat on a collision course with your sailboat on starboard tack in light wind.

The self driving boat would automatically power up, leaving a huge wake as it crosses closely across your bow.....

I personally have no need for a humanless vessel, and would never consider buying one.
