Their timing and observation of weather windows was less than optimal. The story doesn't say much about the captain and crew hired to deliver the boat, other than they left SFO on December 8. I doubt that the rope was "tied" around the prop—more likely it was washed overboard and got wrapped, which would be a big problem if they were motoring in heavy seas.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
