Here is the 5 rupee value (Sc #148) from Seychelles's KGVI pictorial definitive series of 1938-41. Stamp is inscribed 'fishing pirogue'.

From wikipedia, "A pirogue, also called piragua or piraga, is any of various small boats, particularly dugouts and native canoes. The word is French and is derived from Spanish 'piragua', which comes from the Carib word 'piraua'."

A kayaker is depicted on this September 4, 1992 stamp (Sc #2139) of Japan. Stamp commemorates the 47th National Athletic Meeting which was held in Yamagata. The competition was called the Safflower National Athletics Championships because the safflower (shown in upper left corner of stamp) flourishes in Yamagata prefecture.

Ruanda-Urundi issued this 25c + 25c semi-postal stamp (Sc #B1) in 1925. Scott catalog calls the boat "Congo canoe". It appears to be a dugout, flat bottom canoe, or pirogue.

On January 19, 1994 New Zealand issued a set of six stamps promoting tourism in the country. The $1.00 value (SG #1780), shown here, depicts vacationers in a jet boat on one of New Zealand's fast-moving rivers.

From en.wikipedia.org, "A jet boat is a boat propelled by a jet of water ejected from the back of the craft. Unlike a powerboat or motorboat that uses an external propeller in the water below or behind the boat, a jet boat draws the water from under the boat through an intake and into a pump-jet inside the boat, before expelling it through a nozzle at the stern."

In 1987 French Polynesia issued this 4 f stamp (Sc #441) showing the island of Raiatea as a part of its "Polynesian Landscapes" series. Stamp depicts islanders crossing the water in a boat propelled by a small outboard motor.

From wikipedia, "Raiatea is the second largest of the Society Islands, after Tahiti, in French Polynesia. A traditional name for the island is Havai'i, homeland of the Maori people."

On May 21 Norway initiated its Classics of Norwegian Painting series with the issuance of a two-stamp set. The one kroner low value (Facit #714) of this set features a collaborative work between Adolph Tidemand (1814 - 1876) and Hans Gude (1825 - 1903), two Romantic Nationalist painters. Gude is most noted for his skies and landscapes.

About Tidemand, wikipedia says, "Among hist best paintings is Brudeferd Hardanger (The Bridal Procession on Hardanger Fjord, 1848) painted in collaboration with Hans Gude."

As you can see, the printers/designers took liberties with the artists' palette. In fairness, if they had attempted to use the true colors, the stamp may have lacked the contrast to present a clear image.

This early, 8c pictorial definitive stamp (SG #313) of New Zealand features the image of a Maori war canoe in the bottom loop of the large "8". This is the 1902 watermarked variety of the stamp.

From wikipedia, "Waka taua (in Maori waka means canoe and taua means army or war party) are large canoes manned by up to 80 paddlers and are up to 40 meters in length. Traditionally, the war canoe was highly tapu (sacred). No cooked food was allowed in the craft and the waka had to be entered over the gunwales."
