COBBER is meaning mate/friend, somebody who wil not let you down and you can trust.
It's an (archaic) word, but nowadays they don't use it anymore, except in Australia.
According to the Australian-dictionary it also means an unwanted person, an alien, a tourist.....or maybe a kayakker passing by.
A lot of times people are curious about kayakkers:
Where do you go
Is it not to cold
Are you sure you will go
Are you having food with you
You have a map with you
Can you take a tent
