Powerboat level 2 courses can be run on any craft and power system as long as it meets the requirements of the RYA recognition guidelines. ie it has suitable seating, equipment and is suitable for use in the training area operating from. The same applies for own boat tuition.
Jet drives, stern drives etc are all suitable but are usually used by specialist training centres who specialise in those craft. The majorityof training centres for PBL2 use boats with out board for a number of reasons. Namely, they are cheaper to purchase and maintain, the boats they use for training often aren't big enough for inboard engines and also the majority of their clients are going to go away and drive boats with outboards so want to learn on boats with outboards.
Certificates should only be endorsed for planning/non planning and tidal/inland. The students log book is for recording the type of craft they have experience driving.
