Transport over water has been going on for decades. Older ships were powered by steam and wind; nowadays, of course, ships are equipped with combustion engines. The diesel engine was first used to power a ship in 1903. In 1910, a seagoing tanker was fitted with a diesel engine for the first time. Today, 99% of all ships are equipped with diesel engines.
