There is an awful lot of talk about kayaks on this board ;-) which led me to thinking - is it OK that we call recreational boats, whitewater boats, inflatables and sit-on-tops "kayaks". Most of them have very little to do with a "quyaq" - a long narrow hunting boat. I'm not nitpicking on word use, just want to see what other people think about it. Somehow it makes more sense to me when people say "whitewater boat" rathern than "whitewater kayak". But that's just me.
