Engine room: "Bridge! Bridge! we have a runaway diesel! We can't stop her!"
Pilot: "Oh $hit!"

For how these boats work and what can go wrong, and how it applies to US in our little boats check out this book. It's short, quite preachy, but defiantly worth a read. It has lots of "scenarios" where he outlines how these ships can, and can't maneuver, and how we can either make a pilot swear at us, or thank us.

GREETINGS EARTHLINGS The fishing boat was not showing any fishing signals
she was not keeping an effective responsible look-out in accordance to the avoidance of collision at sea regulations. By her sails is showing she is sailing seams sh is the one blowing the warning signal ( more than five short blasts on her whistle) But no one is 100% to blame AS ALWAYS GO SAFE

Very fortunate that the fishing vessel went HARD astern just prior to impact -- this would have ended pretty ugly had he not.
It seems the fishing vessle altered course to starboard right before impact. If they were altering course then there was someone at the helm. Why wouldn't they have just turned to port? Probably misjudged the sailing ship speed (slow), and thought they would pass astern.
