    • Very simple way i learned from the navy was to say “there is no red, port left” and “Star bright, star right, starboard is to the right”

    • There used to be a board in the water they used to steer with called the steerboard which was on the right side so they had to port on the left. Now its called starboard but i just think of the steerboard on the right so port has to be left

    • In the early days of boating, before a central rudder, boats were steered by a oar or a rudder off the back right side of the boat. Hence, 'steer board' became 'starboard'. With the steer board in the way on the right side, they always put the left side toward the dock when in 'port'.

    • In case anyone is wondering: Starboard comes from a word basically meaning the steering side, since most people are right handed and would thus be rowing out the right side. Since the oars came out the right, you would put port on your left.
