What my friends have done in that situation, they tie a FOAM PFD to a line, and then when they get tired, they get into the PFD...

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.

3.- The guard itself could break and become an entanglement.

If you are really so concerned about fouling a prop, maybe you should consider a shaft-mounted line cutter.
Good points to consider. How effective are the shaft cutters? I realize they would work well on lines, but what about nets? Has anyone heard of the prop getting tangled even with the cutters?
