NOTE TO LANDLUBBERS: If a sailing vessel is small and has only one mast it may properly be included in this thread.


Well I guess schooners are out too then.

No ships, no motors, no oars,


but a lot of plastic bottles. I watched these guys last spring
on their journey in their sailboat made of plastic bottles. No stamp, yet.

Interesting side step, please forgive me.

lithograving & Cjd - A compromise: Upon further reflection, I suppose schooners, ketches and yawls might as well be included, too. But we must draw the line somewhere, so we'll make it no more than TWO masts. OK? There already is a thread for stamps depicting sailing ships.

Here is an image of a stamp depicting a Limfjorden skiff, a type of wooden dinghy, designed and engraved by Martin Mörck, and issued by Denmark on June 15, 1996, Scott No. 1053, Facit No. 1155.

Stamps, beer and if you are over 25 then we have 3 things in common.


Yup I'm a bit over 25 but I also like wine.




Here are a couple of small Israelis for you nethryk.
I have no idea as to what kind of sailing vessels they are.

All this talk about schooners reminded me of one of my favorite TV shows as a kid, "Adventures in Paradise" (1959–1962), starring Gardner McKay as Adam Troy, sailing around the South Pacific in his gorgeous schooner, the Tiki. The show's theme music, composed by Dorcas Cochran & Lionel Newman, is unforgettable. Check it out at http://capitainetroy.free.fr/

Another Israeli small sailing boat on the Red Sea in Eilat.

The location is actually on the Gulf of Aqaba which brings
back memories of the movie Lawrence of Arabia

Amazing the stuff what comes to mind while looking at stamps.

Gorch Fock, (gosh, I hope I spelled that right)
The 1933 Gorch Fock had already been designed to be a very safe ship: she had a righting moment large enough to bring her back into the upright position even when heeling over to nearly 90°.

Same time as I posted mine about the Gulf of Aqaba and Lawrence of Arabia there is nethryk reminiscing about the TV show Adventures in Paradise because he was looking at schooner stamps.

Like I said, collecting stamps is amazing, the best hobby in the world.

Fifia, no wonder you like beer so much, you're eating too much
It's too salty.

This Sudanese is only inscribed as Sailing Boat but it
looks like another Dhow to me.

Nice going everyone. Please pour me a schooner, as I think I'm coming down with a bad case of regatta fever. Here are images of a couple of stamps depicting small boats engraved and printed by Thomas De La Rue & Co., Ltd.

- nethryk

Outrigger canoe, vignette originally designed by V.E. Ousey in 1938, issued for use in Fiji on July 1, 1954, Scott No. 147, SG No. 280.


Virgin Islands sloop, issued for use in the British Virgin Islands on November 1, 1956, Scott No. 116, SG No. 150.

nethryk, what you are really looking for is a Mount Gay and tonic.

Here is a Pitcairn Islander from an era that I find to often be uninspiring, design-wise:



It looks better enlarged a bit...in person it is quite "blah."

Cjd - Thanks for your kind suggestion, but to tell the truth I'm not exactly the rummie type. Instead, I think I'll just call it a night.

But first, here's an image of one more beauty with sails: The fishing smack Westward Ho, designed (after an 1884 photo by J.A. Arge) and engraved by Czeslaw Slania, and issued by Faroe Islands on September 10, 1984, Scott No. 112, Facit No. 105.
