Agree, car_sharing is not a good translation for "covoiturage". I don't now a english term, but in german this would be "Mitfahrsystem" or "Mitfahrzentrale", but both referring more to the system as a whole or the operator of a website organizing this kind of "car_sharing". In Switzerland, there was a system some time ago which had real stop (like bus stops), where a member could enter his destination and then cars would stop. But this does not exist anymore, I do not now if this exists somewhere else or if it's already mapped.

Yes, no such kind on boats :-)

I do not understand what you mean by that. The "Type"-tag seems restricted to realtions, to avoid confusion I named the subtag for the boat-type "boattype". Do you mean this should be change into "boat_sharing:type"??

What would go under "captain:type"??

Cheers, nounours
