Just a thought as the flap over the intake sounds familiar:-
How about a fitment like a truck exhaust brake as well as a stop solenoid? It'll stop the engine instantly preventing 'run on' as the engine winds down from high revs.
It doesn't seem to do any harm to the engine on trucks but not sure if it's possible without a compressor on the engine to run one.
The truck the mermaid engine was fitted to (80's Ford Cargo) had one fitted as standard.
