When asking for a boat recommendation, is fit important, or not?
Sorry, no sale. IF he led with it and asked for suggestions regarding his physical condition, then you'd have a point. Obviously there are kayak choices that may suit him (he never mentioned his height).
I suppose if he were black and asking for recommendations for golf clubs, you'd ask him whether he should consider a sport more open to minorities. Or recommend that a woman asking for recommendations for football equipment find a sport more open to women. After all, they led with it.
