It is used for the transportation of goods or services from one location to another across the sea or ocean, and comes in various sizes.The movement of people and other objects from one place to another have been made easier and faster with the aid of cars, trains, airplanes, and ships, and this is because humans have utilized their wisdom and God given potentials in manufacturing machines that makes life comfortable and better for the good of mankind. While some of these crafts used in transportation are slow, there are others built with powerful engines that makes them move quicker and faster.
