One word: Beer

If the police came I bet the boat owner will get BUI.

My guess is that he has a throttle cable issue. Something in the control is screwed up... I don't get the impression that it was alcohol.

If it was cable related, why didn't he just shut the engine off?

I agree with control issue. Cable, linkage, software, something to do with throttle/shift.
