Not Jack, not Celia, but their meaningless quibble.
Both are agreeing that there will be some few inches of water in a real seakayak after it's flipped upright after a wet exit. Celia is saying that often doesn't matter to her.
But that's not Jack's point. Jack is saying even a few inches of water would cause real seakayaks to fall within the OP's proposed definition of a rec kayak -- namely, "ANY boat that cannot be DRAINED (without the aid of a pump)". Jack is apparently reading "drained" as fully drained.
