Re: NO such thing as "fuselage" kayaks!

. . . it has been picked up by Mr. Kudzu who repeated it often enough (to market his Kudzucraft business) until it passed to the general public as a legitimate term

Google search confirms the term going no further back than 2011, and propagated primarily by Mr. Kudzu.

This is exactly what happened, yes, and it is perfectly valid to remind everyone and/or point this out.
Whether the term is applicable is certainly open to one's interpretation.

"Non-traditional construction" is my term of choice. But, building boats - no matter how we do it - is the important part!
