... about this either. Naturally if I'm talking to someone I just met and they say they go kayaking, or that they call themselves a kayaker, my own background interests will allow me to ask whatever questions I wish which will clarify exactly what it is that they do. If they've done 50-mile crossings in fog or rough weather, I'll know they won't be inviting me on such trips, and if all they do is poke around near shore in a fat rec boat, I'll know not to invite them on a long river trip, or one that requires good maneuvering and river-reading skills. Either way, they are happy and so am I, so I just can't imagine a reason to worry about applying strict boundaries to this terminology.
