It's just that they don't allow them as carry-on luggage

Whaoooooooooooooooo - what a vessel

I know that my opinion is fatally flawed but you have to have massive respect for a small boat building company in the Glens of Antrim that have the vision, determination, resources and craftsmanship to build such an awesome small ship - maybe no surpise as all these qualities are in the DNA of all Redbay RIBs

As a bloke with pointy ears said "live long and prosper"
