4. So, is their theory someone untied the boat from the mooring and didn't know how to start the engine

... and then the boat just drifted away with this dude onboard?

Like, the dude didn't know he needed to put a key in the ignition or something?

"Hey, I like that boat. I wonder if I can steal it. Well, I'm not doing anything else right now, so I'll give it a try. I bet I can download the owner's manual from the internet on my smart phone."

Or maybe he got it started, but it ran out of fuel or he over-taxed the engine?

Or maybe the owners called OnStar and had them remotely turn-off the engine once it was stolen?
