I would consider a rowboat a 'boat' - but the problem is that the "No
rowboat" sign does not mean the vehicle class but the 'drive' of the
"A boat that is _not_ driven by motor or sail."
So it also forbids canoe/kayak.
So the access can only be determined correctly if a rowboat is
considered with the access canoe=*.
E.g. the german regulations differ
a) by drive
b) by class
- sport (motor or sail boat/yacht - but not: canoe, kayak, rowboat,
So the access restriction boat=* could only be used for 'sport' boats
with motor or sail.
