1858- The first Motor Boat invented by Etienne Lenior. Jean Joseph Étienne Lenoir also known as Jean J. Lenoir was a Belgian engineer who developed the internal combustion engine in 1858. Prior designs for such engines were patented as early as 1807, but none were commercially successful.

1908- Invention of the Titanic. The Titanic was built in Belfast, north Ireland.
1911- The first Seaplane was invented. Fabre's first successful take off and landing by a powered seaplane inspired other aviators, and he designed floats for several other flyers. The first hydro-aeroplane competition was held in Monaco in March 1912, featuring aircraft using floats from Fabre, Curtiss, Tellier and Farman.
1912- When the Titanic sunk. The Titanic hit the huge iceburg when it sunk.

Charles Furnas became the first American airplane passenger when he flew with Orville Wright at Kitty Hawk later that year.
