So there's another suggestion - have a chat with potential assessors and ask what they think. Some will be big open boat fans and will consider open boating an important part of L2. Others will recognise that you are a kayaker who wants to teach other kayakers, and won't be so fussed about your open boat skills.
Do any names spring to mind? I don't see how proficiency in poling and sailing OC has any benefit to teaching OC at 2 Star level.
