Rafts are the most basic watercraft. This 50c value (Sc #355) from Jamaica's June 5, 1972 pictorial set of 15 depicts a bamboo raft. River rafting in Jamaica is most commonly done by visitors on the Martha Brae River. The rafts are 30 ft. bamboo craft designed for two seated passengers, and piloted by an experienced, standing guide.

From islandroutes.comm, "...sit back and relax in your personal raft as your captain skillfully navigates the jade green waters of the Martha Brae River."

A small dhow with outriggers is depicted on this 1936 one shilling definitive stamp (Sc #209) of Zanzibar.

From africageographic.com, "...the Swahili word 'dhow' is a generic term for the pre-European ships of the Indian Ocean. Traditionally these dhows were sewn together using coconut coir (fiber) - a medieval practice born of the belief that magnets under the sea would suck any nails out of the vessel."
