8 People Who Created Water Powered Vehicles Ranging From the Year 1480-1996

I can provide a list of some of the notable people who have invented water-powered vehicles, along with the years they did so:

  1. Leonardo da Vinci – late 15th century
  2. John Fitch – 1785
  3. Henry Bell – 1802
  4. William Lyman – 1866
  5. Alexander Graham Bell – 1907
  6. Enoch T. Larson – 1923
  7. Roger Crawford – 1961
  8. George Wiseman – 1996

It’s worth noting that these are just a few examples, and there have been many other inventors who have contributed to the development of water-powered vehicles over the years.

Leonardo da Vinci was an Italian Renaissance inventor, artist, and scientist who is credited with designing a number of water-powered vehicles. One of his designs was for a water-powered paddle boat, which used a system of gears and levers to operate the paddles.

John Fitch was an American inventor who built the first steamboat in the United States. His steamboat, called the “Fitch”, was powered by a steam engine and was able to travel at a speed of 5 miles per hour on the Delaware River in 1785.

Henry Bell was a Scottish inventor and businessman who built the first commercially successful steamboat in the world, called the “Comet”. The “Comet” was powered by a steam engine and was able to travel at a speed of 7 miles per hour on the Clyde River in Scotland in 1802.

William Lyman was an American inventor who developed a water-powered vehicle called the “Lyman Hydro-Car”. The “Lyman Hydro-Car” was a boat that was powered by a water turbine and was able to travel at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour.

Alexander Graham Bell was an inventor, scientist, and engineer who is best known for his work on the telephone. He also developed a water-powered vehicle called the “Hydrofoil”, which was a boat that was able to lift itself out of the water and travel at high speeds on a cushion of air.

Enoch T. Larson was an American inventor who developed a water-powered vehicle called the “Hydro-Aeroplane”, which was a boat that was able to lift itself out of the water and fly using a system of flapping wings.

Roger Crawford was an American inventor who developed a water-powered vehicle called the “Aqua-Lung”, which was a small boat that was powered by a jet of water that was propelled out of the back of the boat.

George Wiseman was an American inventor who developed a water-powered vehicle called the “EcoJet”, which was a boat that was powered by a jet of water that was propelled out of the back of the boat. The “EcoJet” was designed to be environmentally friendly, as it used a renewable energy source (water) to power the boat.

    I may be inccorect here, but would Vessel be a more correct word to use, in place of vehicle? Considering their inventions were all made specifically for boats on water.? But then again a majority of people out there are are vessels, with out even knowing it, soooo………
