The Calf of Man
This beautiful set of ten stamps spotlights a variety of aspects of the Calf of Man with special emphasis on the conservation work of the Manx National Trust to mark the 70th anniversary of its foundation.

Only one stamp shows us a watercraft of I have not any details only that she is a wooden-hulled launch.

1st: SEA TRANSPORT (Mike Radcliffe) – The Calf Attending Boat. An integral lifeline to the Island, the transportation of people and supplies by sea is vital. The late Juan Clague, his son, and his dog are featured. Juan was a well-known and much-loved character who dedicated much of his life to the Calf attending service which is continued by his son Steve.
The Calf of Man Island is accessed by small boat operators running return trips from Port St Mary and Port Erin. Sailings are subject to suitable weather conditions, tide and the availability of the boatmen, and all journeys must be booked in advance with the boatmen.
