On May 17, 1989 New Zealand issued a six-value set of stamps as the 2nd issue of its "NZ Heritage" series. The 80c value (SG #1508) of the set features whaling, and depicts a whaleboat.

From wikipedia, "A whaleboat or whaler is a type of open boat that is relatively narrow and pointed at both ends. It was originally developed for whaling, and later became popular for work along beaches, since it does not have to be turned around for beaching or refloating."

On September 28, 1990 the USA issued a horizontally se-tenant pair of 25c stamps (Sc #s 2506-7) featuring small boats of The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), two South Pacific Island nations with which it has special (defense) relationships. The FSM and RMI are both independent, sovereign nations and members of the United Nations. Both have a compact of free association with the USA.

The outrigger boats depicted are generally referred to as walaps, but wikipedia distinguishes three distinct types: 1.) korkor, a small sailing/rowing canoe used in atoll lagoons, 2.) typnol, a medium-sized sailing canoe used for short-distance voyaging over open water with crew of 2, and up to 10 passengers, and 3.) walap, a large, blue-water sailing canoe up to 30 meters in length holding up to 50 people and food supplies for up to 7 months.

Here is the USA's October 17, 1970 six cent stamp (Sc #1409) commemorating the sesquicentennial of the founding of Fort Snelling, on the upper Mississippi River. Fort Snelling was Minnesota's westernmost outpost, and a gateway to the great Northwest. A keelboat being pushed upstream with poles by its crew is pictured on the stamp.

From nps.gov, "When the crew powered a keelboat upstream and the river bottom was unsuitable for travel, a cordelle or towline several hundred feet long was attached to the keelboat and taken ashore by the men who then walked along pulling the boat behind them. The difficulties and expense of propelling a loaded keelboat upriver encouraged the search for other methods of transportation on the rivers, hence, the steamboat."
