Another Dinghy Towing Question

My experience has proven that you can easily and quickly get a floating tow line in the prop. Maybe a corked line would have prevented this incident but I sort of doubt it. Our boat being a double ender has a very rounded stern thus allowing a line to slip beneath the surface veryeasily. I don't want to go into great detail about this incident other then to say the skiff was cut loose and retrieved later, had this tow line been nylon or Dacron I would have had a few more problems. I have a good collection of boating trophies from years of fun on the water. Do You?
