...have dramatically INCREASED sales of paddle craft and have brought MANY MORE people into kayaking, by providing a low-risk, low effort entry into the activity. Although most rec paddlers probably don't progress to more advanced boats, a significant percentage get hooked and move on to "real" kayaks, and learn the skills required to paddle them. I have witnessed this first-hand MANY times. Without rec boats, there would undoubtedly be far fewer skilled enthusiast paddlers on the water. You've got it backwards; just ask any kayak dealer.
