Sorry. You have now left the world of aviation and entered the maritime world. Stinkpot is the unaffectionate nickname given to powerboats by sailors. The powerboaters (stinkpotters) return the favor by referring to us as ragboaters, for the large quantities of cloth that we hang on our boats, in a vain attempt to actually move. We, however, has a strong dislike of iron sails (engines), which is why we continue to go nowhere. This is an old rivalry, predating Boeing vs. Airbus, or majors vs. commuters, as it began as soon as steam ships were invented.
I would give you an opinion on this trip, but my view is so blatantly biased, that I think is will be better to let other people tell you what they think. In the end, though, it's whatever floats your boat.
