when it comes to safety we owe it to our paddling buds to be totally straight with them. You don't want him to get hurt and hopefully he respects that. I've had some protective friends question my preparedness on the water before they really got to know me. They mumbled something about"using air mattresses for flotation" and "not having helmets" and the "suitability of a rec canoe in whitewater" I just took that as genuine concern on their part. I don't hold that against anybody. It sounds like you all need to paddle something in your comfort range together before you're ready to loan out your gear. Nothing wrong with that at all.
