With so much knowledge, you left out the most important part....

If the boat was running, why did they leave?

I'm no rocket scientist but by simple math from both boats with their multiple engine combos. it would seem that if the two boats where powered equally the fountain would be faster.

The boat was running, it was OL call that morning to not run in the kilo, it had nothing to do with the engines not performing.
