Trustworthy or reliable? I reckon kayakers are about the most unreliable of 'groups' when it comes to organizing anything. Ever known a kayaker turn up on time? That hit home. Lol.

R kayakers any more trust worth.

I have a history of bad experience with tradesmen. Plumbers etc. ( a long list - over the years).
As a group, kayakers seem to be a trust worth bunch.
So... my logic is if I could find a Kayaker who is say a gas fitter or a builder.
I would have a less of a chance of being ripped off.
