French term or phrase: Ligne d'arbre
I'm hoping some boating expert can help me. I'm translating a certificat de conformité for an inflatable dinghy and this is a type of engine. I'm afraid ther isn't much context, just a list.

Here it is:

Type de moteur

01 hors-bord
02 ligne d'arbre
03 z ou stern (embase relevable)
04 turbine
05 autres
