If I glue a minicell seat on stand-up paddleboard is it a kayak ?
Words have meanings; they can't be omni encompassing.
They have definitions, parameters, guidelines.

Coast Guard considers SUPs to be boats
- they use definitions to enforce laws on the water.

What is a kayak and what isn't ?
Forum discussions involve opinions, as well as conjecture,
hype, myth, marketing nonsense, perception, etc., etc.
Just trying to weed thru it all.

Barge = flat-bottomed boat, built mainly
for river and canal transport of heavy goods.

I won't call this a kayak, perhaps some might.

Is a non-seperated twin hull catamaran = kayak ?
(i.e. little or no square area webbing to sit on.)
