Significance of "propelling machinery"

It dawned on me that we needed a definition of "propelling machinery."


My search led to this:

Quote:
6-98 A sailing under part sail but also using propulsive machinery (‘motorsailing”) so as to give her additional speed is not a “sailing vessel”.
From Marsden on Collisions at Sea, p. 194 TinyURL.com - shorten that long URL into a tiny URL

I think that the part in bold is crucial. Charging batteries and running compressors does not give additional speed.

Anyone else?
