Right after the raid on the Marmara, the Israeli Navy claimed that the ship was not disabled because it would have taken days to bring her to port. Later, the Navy came up with a new improved claim, that there was no safe way to disable the ship. This seems a fishy claim, especially because a safe way is well known: Disable the motor and propeller by throwing a net or chain over it. The passengers could then have been evacuated by any ship in the area, not necessarily Israeli, and goodbye. As became known, the Navy actually TESTED the disabling approach, carrying a chain between two fast boats. It rejected this trick because it only worked half the time. So what? You try it twice with 75% of success, or 3 times with 87.5% success probability. Perhaps nobody there could work out the math...
