U/S Mail Boat, Sophie C. on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH

The Motor Vessel (M/V) Sophie C. on is the oldest floating post office in the United States. Each season she provides mail service on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH, a tradition dating back to 1892. Both of Sophie's daily mail runs takes her to 5 islands where her staff delivers mail to the island residents and summer camps. In addition to being a full-service post office where these residents may purchase postal supplies and stamps, Sophie also has a collection of ice cream novelty treats and snacks for sale. A daily ice cream bar or popsicle has become quite a summer tradition for her island friends. Passengers aboard the Sophie C. are invited to fill out Sophie C. postcards and mail them right on board. Perhaps you can surprise a friend or relative with mail sent from a boat, complete with Sophie's own unique, collectible cancellation stamp!
