Kayaks -v- Canoes

What is it with people constantly calling kayaks; canoes? It’s seems to be a recurring theme going all the way back to when the two boats were first made and this latest slip up has made it on to national television (albeit Australian telly) in a pretty funny beer ad;

As the paddlers amongst you would probably have noticed the ‘real men’ in this Carlton Draught ad are carrying kayaks on their shoulders, not big old hefty Canadian style canoes – no matter what the voiceover man says.

I suppose we need to be thankful – at least we’re in the same ballpark, people haven’t yet started to call them ‘paddle-boats’! What’s your take on the naming convention, let us know in your comments below…
