Obviously not a mayday situation.

Like with any other breakdown, you would:

1. Switch to alternative/redundant power source (gen or backup power bank)
2. Fix it
3. Get towed back to land and deal with it there.

The merits of having 2 engines or backup propulsion is debated endlessly here. I would think the electric boat guys would consider the same ideas.
