Re: NO such thing as "fuselage" kayaks!

Word meaning changes over time, all the time.
This is not an English forum.


Actually, ignoring the materials used, the fuselage style frames and skins is similar to older aircraft fuselages, which is probably why it was accepted.

I would propose that "Greenland" style is an inappropriate terminology, since it does nothing to describe the means of construction.
We should instead used the term - Stems and bent twigs construction.
