Destination: Mumbai, India

Land Ho! There’s a good chance that dock was built by a guy named Lovji Nusserwanji Wadia, a Parsi and master shipbuilder who the British employed to build both docks and ships in and around Bombay circa 1736. By 1750, Lovji and his brother had built the Mumbai dry dock, which had the distinction of being the first dry dock in all of Asia. The Wadias would continue to be a force in the shipbuilding industry for the next seven generations.

Fun fact: rumor has it that when Francis Scott Key wrote “The Defense of Fort McHenry,” later renamed the “Star Spangled Banner,” he was aboard the HMS Minden, a Wadia-built ship.
