BoatWiki - Definitions
A kayak can be defined in boating terms as a small watercraft that is typically propelled by a double blade paddle. It is designed for recreational purposes.
A kayak is similar to a canoe except that it has an enclosed or covered deck. Although kayaks are not usually propelled by mechanical means, there are some exceptions.
Registration is not required in most states for kayaks unless perhaps mechanically propelled.
Although state registration is not typically required for kayaks, it is a good idea to check their respective rules just to be sure.
