Sounds like castoff has been hanging out with CWDH.
Being a dumb canoe person I looked up kayak and canoe on Wikipedia.
Apparently kayak means “man’s boat” or “hunting boat” and includes open boats paddled with single blade while canoe means “dugout”.
So I’m guessing wavetamer thinks fishing isn’t hunting or else the paddlers in his videos were female so have no category at all.
But I feel extra dumb since my apparently my canoes are really kayaks. I’m one of THEM!
That’s what you guess for guessing Mr. TomL, The history of kayaking includes hunting for whale, caribou, seals, and fishing - (fishing - sometimes in tandem and with hooks sized specifically to limit the size of the fish they’d have to haul into the boat). I know of no Pacific Rim culture that called open boats kayaks and have no idea what the reference to females means, but again in the history of kayaking, men paddled, women sewed on the skins. With all due respect, I think you’d find a more expansive and authentic reference on kayaking to be a real eye (and mind) opener.
