Forgive me if I'm wrong, but SOLAS applies to the safety equipment you carry (life jackets, liferafts, flares ... ) and general construction , operation/maintainance and procedures, but not the mechanical bits like engines.

Your forgiven, as the motor has to conform to solas. No good being a life/rescue boat if your motor ain't up to it

Both, presumably, at the appropriate juncture. From your enlightening responses, I deduce that you are almost as acquainted with the minutiae as I am...
