And Stand Up Paddle? > But should rowboat access restrictions be under this key > canoe=yes/no/designated, or > are they under boat=yes/no/designated - or something else? rowboats are not canoes. We are missing a more generic term. In the international rules it is "vessels under oars" I checked the tags in Denmark. Gudenåen and Skjern Å has canoe=permissive. But rowboats are also allowed (I have rowed on Gudenåen several times). Tåning Å has boat=yes, canoe=yes, motorboat=no There was also a floating pier tagged with canoe=yes. And that is probably not for rowboats. Clubs typically have different piers for rowboats and kayaks. I would say that we could have both "canoe" and "rowboat" and that both canoe and rowboat are also boat, just as e.g., hgv is also motor_vehicle. rowboats should not be canoes. In particular canoe=portage and canoe=put_in is wrong for rowing boats.
