HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY (Ukrainian: Гетьман Сагайдачний) is a frigate of the Ukrainian Navy that was originally built as a patrol ship of Nerei / Menzhinskiy-class. Homeported at Odessa (since March 2014), she is the flagship of the Ukrainian Navy.
Built at the Zalyv Shipbuilding yard, the ship was intended to be used by the Soviet Border Troops as KIROV However, on 4 July 1993, the newly named (after Petro Konashevych-Sahaidachny) HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY raised the flag of the Ukrainian Navy. She was given the identification number of U130.
In 1994, HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY set sail for France to take part in the 50th anniversary commemorations of the Allied invasion of Normandy.
In 1995, HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY visited Abu Dhabi during the "Idex-95" exhibitions. With KOSTIANTYN OLSHANSKY, the frigate visited Norfolk, Virginia in the United States.
The vessel has also visited ports in Algeria, Bulgaria, Egypt, Georgia, Gibraltar, Israel, Portugal, Russia and Turkey.
Between November 2006 and November 2007, she underwent major repairs in Mykolaiv at a cost of 15 million hryvnia.
In 2008, HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY took part in "Operation Active Endeavour" in the Mediterranean Sea.
In February 2013, it was announced that she would be taking part in NATO's "Operation Ocean Shield", an anti-piracy campaign off the Horn of Africa.
HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY joined the Naval Force of the European Union (EUNAVFOR) in early January 2014 for anti-piracy operations. As she refueled in Greece, while Russian forces seized control of Crimea, Russian Senator Igor Morozov claimed on 1 March 2014 that the ship's crew had defected to Russia and raised the Russian flag. Shortly afterwards, independent news organizations reported that the ship was still flying the Ukrainian flag in port in Crete. The commander of the ship confirmed that the crew had never defected to the Russians. It arrived in Odessa under the Ukrainian flag on March 5. On 14 March, the ship encountered a Russian naval group in Ukrainian territorial waters. As HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY approached the group, they withdrew into international waters. In September, the frigate entered Odessa to undergo repairs.
2016 In service.

MATALIKI

Tokelau’s population of approximately 1,400 relies entirely on shipping for the transport of passengers and goods, as there are no flights to and from the atolls. This nautically inspired stamp issue celebrates Tokelau’s new ferry MV MATALIKI, which set off from Apia, Samoa on 3 February 2016 on its first journey to Tokelau.

Issue information

MATALIKI has been specifically designed with a focus on passenger transport, and a greater number of proper berths have been established. The ship provides more comfort during the 24-hour journey than previous vessels, with larger seats and sleeping areas. As well as having a cargo deck, the design of the ferry includes a sick room for medical evacuations between hospitals, and mounted solar panels to help reduce power consumption.

45c - MV MATALIKI
Commissioned by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, MV MATALIKI is an international passenger ship. The ferry, which was custom made by Western Marine Shipyard, can transport up to 60 international passengers and 120 passengers between atolls, as well as seven 10-foot shipping containers.

$1.40 - Plain sailing from Apia
MV MATALIKI’s standard round trip begins in Apia, Samoa then it sails onto Fakaofo, Nukunonu and Atafu, Tokelau’s three atolls. The ferry travels at up to 11.5 knots, taking around 24 hours to complete the first leg of the journey from Apia to Fakaofo and four to six hours between villages, a slightly shorter trip than its predecessors.

$2.00 - Freight
Growing and harvesting crops in the coral atolls of Tokelau is difficult. Therefore Tokelau imports fresh crops and other essentials from neighbouring Samoa. Although MV MATALIKI operates mainly as a passenger ferry, it can also carry up to 490 tonnes of cargo. (Which can’t be right must be much less)

$3.00 - The final leg
Tokelau’s three atolls are surrounded by fringing reef, which no ferries or freighters can enter, meaning all freight and passengers are transported to land by barge. All passengers are made to wear lifejackets while on board the barge - safety first!

A closer look at MV MATALIKI
Alongside the set of four stamps in this issue there are a miniature sheet, a first day cover and a miniature sheet first day cover. Resembling a blueprint, the miniature sheet first day cover delves into MV MATALIKI’s technical specifications. The first day cover focuses on the lengthy round trip that MATALIKI takes from Apia, Samoa to Tokelau’s three atolls.

BROIGHTER BOAT

Ireland issued a set of stamps on 8 March 1990 featuring the theme of “Irish Heritage and Treasures.” Two stamps depicting a small boat just under 20cm long beaten out of a sheet of gold and equipped with rowing benches, oars, steering oar, grappling iron or anchor and mast. It was found at the end of the 19th century at Broighter in County Derry, and although crudely fashioned, appears to represent a most probably wooden seagoing vessel of the Iron Age. This is the kind of boat in which Irish people traded with Britain and Western Europe. It has been argued that the cache of objects found at Broighter may have been concealed as an offering to the Celtic god of the sea Manannán Mar Lir.
The Broighter boat you can see in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.

TYPICAL WOODEN BOATS OF MADEIRA

In 1990 Madeira issued a set of 4 stamps which shows us typical wooden boats from the island and used for fishing.
The local people of Madeira considered any type of vessel by the numbers of wine barrels she could carry.
The 32E shows us an ATUNEIRO (tuna) boat used for the catching of the tuna around the island. Formerly an open whaleboat which was used in the tuna fisheries. Now motorized. The stamp shows a motorized boat and I believe fully decked.
The 60E shows a BARCO DA DESERTA, which is larger than a tuna boat with a length between 10 to 12 metres. She is fully decked which gives more safety for the vessel and crew.
The 70E shows us a MANEIRO which was in use from the beginning of the 20th century and she is propelled by two or four rowers.
The 95E shows us a BARCO CHAVELHA a medium sized wooden boat with a length up to 7 meters, first rowed but now mostly motorized.

Aak to Zumbra a Dictionary of the World’s Watercraft mentioned only the ATUNEIRO.

BREADALBANE

Click image to view full size
Built in 1843 as a wooden three masted ship, on the yard of Henderick & Rowan, Glasgow for account of McNeil & Co., Glasgow.
Tonnage 428 tons, dim. 107.7 x 24.4 x 18.2ft.
Bark rigged.
Delivered July 1843.

Built for the trade between the U.K and India.
26 March 1853, chartered by the British Government for three years as transport vessel.
22 May 1853 she sailed from London, under command of Capt. John McKenzie, for Baffin Bay in search for the lost Sir John Franklin expedition. Her ice master was George Sabiston, I can remember that even in the 1960s ships of the company I was sailing for used ice masters when they were loading in Greenland ports, the ice master or pilot is mostly a experienced captain who knows the waters and ice situation well in that area. On that voyage she had a crew of 20 (21other source) men including the master and ice master.


07 Oct. 1853 it was reported that she was lost, when her companion ship the PHOENIX arrived at Thurso, North Scotland. It was reported that on 21 August 1853 she was crushed by shifting ice and sank in 15 minutes off Beechey Island. The crew was saved by the PHOENIX.
19 October 1853 the rescued crew arrived at London.

The following is an excerpt from the August 21, 1853 journal entry by William H. Fawckner, Royal Navy Officer on the BREADALBANE.

About ten minutes past four a.m., the ice passing the ship awoke me, and the door of my cabin from the pressure opened: I immediately hurriedly put on my clothes, and on getting up found some hands on the ice, endeavoring to save the boats, but they were instantly crushed to pieces; they little thought, when using their efforts to save the boats, that the BREADALBANE was in so perilous a situation. I went foreward to hail the PHOENIX, for men to save the boats, and whilst doing so, the ropes by which we were secured parted, and a heavy nip took the ship making every timber in her creak, and the ship tremble all over. I looked in the main hold, and saw the beams given away; I hailed those on the ice and told them of our critical situation, they not for one moment suspecting it. I then rushed to my cabin, hauled out my portmanteau on the deck, and roared like a bull to those in their beds to jump out and save their lives. The starling effects on them might be more easily imagined than described. On reaching the deck those on the ice called out to me to jump over the side, that the ship was going over…

Everyone then abandoned the ship, with what few clothes they saved – some with only what they had on… The ship now began to sink fast, and from the time her bowsprit touched the ice, until her mastheads were out of sight, did not occupy above one minute and a half. It was a very sad and unceremonious way of being turned out of our ship. For the first time the first nip took her, until her disappearance, did not occupy more that fifteen minutes.
I, as well all the spectators of the last of BREADALBANE, was astonished at the rapid manner in which she went down… I can not easily imagine why the two missing Arctic ships (EREBUS and TERROR) have never been heard of, and it is but too probable in my mind, they were lost not many miles from my old vessel, and that all hands met with a watery grave.

On 13 August 1980 the hull of the BREADALBANE was rediscovered by a team of scientists in a position 74 41 N and 91 50W.

On the stamp, only her steering wheel is depict.

Extract from an article by J B Maclnnis National Geographic July 1983.
Far below the surface of the hostile sea, tomorrows technology unlocks the secrets of a long‑dead vessel.
She is BREADALBANE, a British Bark launched in 1843 and lost a decade later in the ice of Canadas Northwest Passage while aiding in the search for survivors of the ill‑fated Franklin Expedition. She is the nothernmost shipwreck ever discovered on the seafloor.
During his six long years of research and exploration for BREADALBANE Dr Maclnnis got his real first view of the vessel on 13 August 1980 in a ghostly side scan sonar image.
Entombed beneath six feet of surface ice and 340 feet of arctic water, the ship appeared far beyond human reach or ability to explore. Yet only 3 years later, in early May, a diver touched down on BREADALBANE'S deck in a revolutionary submersible destined to extend mans reach under the sea. Dubbed WASP for its resemblance to that insect, it is also referred to as “a submarine you wear''. The 'wheel of misfortune' that guided BREADALBANE in her final moments before storm driven ice punctured her hull and sent her to the bottom off Beechy Island in Canadas high Arctic was beautifully preserved by near‑freezing temperatures and an absence of pollution or marine borers, was promptly flown to the world famous Parks Canada conservation facility in Ottawa.
By some miracle all the 21 crewmen aboard managed to scramble to safety on the surrounding ice and joined an accompanying ship.
