" 20.13 Outboard motors. Where a yacht is propelled by an outboard motor and
carries fuel 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 and propeller 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,.

Re: NZ and Foreign Flagged Vessels

I read it that way, too. So, those trusty seaworthy Seawind 1000s with OBs would not be allowed to leave NZ? Where's Factor?

Re: NZ and Foreign Flagged Vessels

Yes, I stand corrected. I was looking at my copy which expired 2012. Incredibly, they have loosened up on a rule. Rare, considering they usually only add to them.
