ISLAND BAY N.Z. and fishing boats.

New Zealand issued in 1983 four stamps which shows us paintings made by Rita Angus, one of this stamps has a maritime theme, it shows us the Island Bay near Wellington, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Island_Bay,_New_Zealand with in the bay fishing boats, which are locally known as the Italian wooden fishing boats. Since the late 19th century Italian emigrants settled in Island Bay (little Italy) many commenced fishing from the bay in the Cook Strait After the 1960s the Italian fleet declined and 2018 there are not more Italian boats in the bay.
Of this issues the New Zealand post gives. This issue of stamps featured the works of Rita Angus whose meticulous compositions in oil and water-colours earned her the reputation as a leader of the modern school of New Zealand painting.
Rita Angus, born in Hastings, and received her early arts skills training at Palmerston North before moving to Christchurch where she attended Diploma classes at the Canterbury School of Arts from 1927-1931. She lived in Christchurch until 1954 when she moved northwards to settle in Wellington, leaving it for one year in 1958 to study and work in Europe. Throughout her career she made frequent painting trips throughout New Zealand, especially to Central Otago and Hawke's Bay.
In the early part of her career she often depicted aspects of Wanaka, a region of particularly serene beauty in New Zealand's South Island. It has been suggested that she turned to watercolour during the war years because paintings in that medium were more saleable when people had less money and also because of a shortage of imported artists materials, but the fact is that the artist was equally at home with both watercolours and oils using them alternatively until the end of her career.
Rita Angus died in 1970 at the age of 62 years following a lifetime devoted to art. In a newspaper obituary Mr Melvin Day, the Director of the National Art Gallery, stated "Her influence on painting in this country was wholly beneficial, not only because of her achievement in art, but above all for her artistic integrity and independence". But perhaps the last word should be left to the artist. In the Year Book of the Arts, 1947, Rita said her aim was "to show to the present a peaceful way, and through devotion to visual art to sow some seed for possible maturity in later generations."
This stamp issue featured four stamps with her artwork and the issue coincided with the first major touring exhibition of works by the artist, which was organised by the National Art Gallery in Wellington. The four paintings chosen to feature on the stamps came from different stages of the artist's career, spanning forty years, in the medium of watercolours and oils. A presentation pack was also issued on 27 April and featured the four stamps. The pack was done in a vertical format, which comformed to the stamp issue. A self-portrait of Rita Angus featured on the front cover.

WSD 42 111K AFRAMAX tanker design

The last stamp of the set of Cuba did give me some problems, there are many red hulled tankers but most photo’s shows the ship forepart.
But at least the large white funnel did give me the clue, the funnel did have not an owners logo, so most probably it was a vessel under construction.
I found a photo on the net for a tanker design from Wartsila Ship Design which shows the ship I was looking for only the free fall lifeboat was not in the same position as on the stamp, but she is the vessel on the stamp. If already one ship of this design is sold, I am not sure.

The design is known as WSD 42 111K an Aframax tanker for oil and products.

CRYSTAL SERENITY is a cruise ship owned by Crystal Cruises. CRYSTAL SERENITY was built in 2003 by STX Europe in St. Nazaire. She operates together with her older fleetmate, CRYSTAL SYMPHONY, offering around the world voyages.
Concept and construction
By March 2000, Nippon Yusen Kaisha, parent company of Crystal, started negotiations with the French shipyard, Chantiers de l'Atlantique, for the construction of a third ship for Crystal Cruises. CRYSTAL SERENITY was then ordered in Chantiers de l'Atlantique (now STX France Cruise SA) on 7 November 2000, together with the signed Letter of Intent. On 12 December 2000, the official contract was then signed by NYK and Chantiers, for the construction of CRYSTAL SERENITY, with an expected delivery by June 2003, which was 6 months ahead of the original plans. By March 2001, Crystal Cruises unveiled the designs for the upcoming CRYSTAL SERENITY. The keel of CRYSTAL SERENITY was laid on 9 July 2002 in Chantiers de l'Atlantique in St. Nazaire, France. She was then christened on 3 July 2003, by Dame Julie Andrews, in Southampton, United Kingdom.
The lead designer of CRYSTAL SERENITY was Robert Tillberg of Tillberg Design. The other designers were the Italian Garroni Designers Company, Japanese Okada & Associates, American Nix Firestone Associates and II by IV design Associates, British Stephenjohn Design and was internally designed by Brennan Beer Gorman Monk (BBGM) of New York.
Ports of call
The maiden voyage of CRYSTAL SERENITY was on July 7, 2003, 4 days after her christening. It was a 14-day round-trip cruise, departing Southampton and cruising Northern Europe. During her inaugural season, CRYSTAL SERENITY held summer cruises in Europe, the Mediterranean Sea, and a transatlantic crossing. It was followed by two Caribbean/Panama Canal voyages and a combined Christmas/New Year Mexican Riviera cruise, round-trip from Los Angeles.
On January 14, 2004, she embarked on her first world cruise; a 106-day voyage departing Los Angeles, which concluded on May 5, in New York City.
CRYSTAL SERENITY was the largest cruise ship ever to navigate the Northwest Passage. Starting on 10 August 2016, the ship sailed from Vancouver to New York City with 1,700 passengers and crew, taking 28 days for the journey. In the Canadian Arctic it successfully made stops at Ulukhaktok and Cambridge Bay on Victoria Island, then passed up Franklin Strait and through the narrow Bellot Strait, adjacent to Zenith Point, the most northerly extension of North America. It explored Beechy Island where Franklin overwintered, followed by seldom visited fjords on the south side of Devon Island, plus fjords on Baffin Island and the village of Pond Inlet. On Sept. 5, 2016 it sailed for Disko Bay in Greenland. Her transit triggered comments on Canada's Arctic sovereignty.
2017 In service, same name and owner, Bahamas flag and registry.
