    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Good thought to entangle the prop. I can see how that would take some nerve and good timing.

    This is what outboards do when you lose steering control through letting go of the tiller or perhaps breaking a cable. Tight turn starboard and then clockwise circling.
