There's a phrase"to put out to sea". What to say when the water is not sea but lake or river?"He put out"-is it clear that he went on water?
You really don't want to just say "he put out", it has an entirely different meaning. In slang terms it refers to someone who is sexually active.As far as "to put out to sea", don't know that you would really use that in terms of someone on a lake or river, you'd be more likely to say "he went sailing", or they went boating".
You could say:~~left the shore~~set adrift~~went into the lake or river~~went boatingThere really is no term like "out to sea" when referring to a lake or river
Double connotation. First, "laid to rest" or "let go". Referencing the ebb and flow of the tide of the ocean. The burial of someone while out at sea. Secondly, let go from a position of employment.

To sail or to set sail is universal terms used for a nautical journey on lake or by sea, it does not matter what kind of boat or ship it is, no sails are necessary. Ocean liners have sailing schedules as well as fishing charters on lakes.
