These "vintage mahogany speedboats" (4Aug2007) are too small to post on the "ship stamps" thread so I thought I'd post them here and see what other small watercraft have been featured on stamps.

I liked that issue when it first came out. I even bought a sheet for my boyfriend, who really misses having his own boat.

I believe the first U.S. stamp to depict a small boat was the 2c Columbian Exposition issue of 1893 -- Landing of Columbus.





And the second being the 2c Jamestown Exposition issue of 1907.



The 2c Pilgrim Tercentenary issue -- Landing of the Pilgrims -- is another where a small boat figures prominently in the design.

Thanks Fifia Unfortunately I don't have any stamps featuring speedboats, just a lot of photos from along our beach. Great topic.

nethryk,

Thanks for posting that Greenland issue -- it led me to this blog on indigenous boats which includes a four-part series on the Greenland umiak: http://indigenousboats.blogspot.com...d-umiak.html

A gufa is a circular boat propelled by a pole or single paddle, rather like a coracle. Here is an image of a stamp depicting gufas on the Tigris River, designed by British artist Florence Edith Cheesman (active 1897-1923), engraved and printed by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co., and issued by Iraq in 1923, Scott No. 2, SG No. 18.
