Names like bosun, AB, OS, Greaser, Oiler, Lecky, Spark, Mate, GP, are some of the titles given to certain personnel on board a ship. Parts of a ship like bow, stern, starboard, port, bridge, telegraph, aft peak tank, double bottom, shaft tunnel, stern tube, and many others are common on board a ship, but hardly heard of on the land.

The basic concepts of propulsion has remained pretty much the same, but there were many improvement since then. Many of the marine disaster like the sinking of the SS Titanic, major oil spillage's, collisions, and many others, set the stage for International Regulations and Conventions on Safety of Life at Sea, SOLAS, Marine Pollution, MARPOL, and many others.

Equipment for marine use is also special. Steering gear, bow thruster, propeller, mooring winches, lifeboat davit, anchor, rudder, boilers, fresh water generator are some examples.
