Boats on stamps

Hello, Another week gone, sorry not written. Today this lovely set because I was at the Syndey International Boat show - yes, I now know how people feel when I show and talk about my interest in aircraft and aviation :-) Beautiful boats mind you, although I suspect that is like calling every aircraft a plane :-) (Sydney CBD in background looking across a boat packed Darling Harbour).

Hope to write again next weekend when back in Sydney. Best wishes Michael

Did I ever mention the difference between a ship and a boat ?
With the exception of submarines, a boat is a vessel that can be and often is hoisted aboard a ship. A ship cannot be put aboard a boat.
