I think the spirit of the rule is this:
Any vessel with propulsion machinery initialed, functional or not, can be considered to be "motorized".
Any vessel propelled by machinery is considered to be a "vessel under power" regardless of what else may be having an effect on it''s mobility.
Here''s a question for the land sharks out there:
If I''m sailing along, with my engine running, let''s say I''m charging my batteries but the prop is not engaged, legally, am I under power or under sail?
