motors. Where a yacht is propelled by an outboard motor
in separate containers, such containers shall be supplied by the fuel tank
manufacturer for that purpose and shall be secured on deck
or in a separate ventilated compartment."
( my italics) and applies to all categories
"20.05 A serviceable engine
shall be installed, capable of driving the yacht in smooth water
at the very least at a speed exceeding the square root of the LWL in metres after converting to feet ...."
This merely forbids engineless boats ( A rule I would disagree with), but does not specifically mandate inboard or outboard,.
