When someone says Starboard or Port, do you have to wave the corresponding hand?

    I dunno, that would make total sense to me.

    How about Longitudinal Frame numbering, isn't that shit crazy?

    OK, actually the longitudinal frame number system does kind of work well.

    When I went to work out on the Aircraft Carriers I found that I was able to navigate those ships with absolutely no problem at all. Once you realize that it's all about which deck you're on, you're good.

    :c

    Old ships used to have steering oars. Starboard is derived from a word meaning steering. Most sailors are right handed, so steering oars were set to the right of the stern. When in port, they tied up with the left side toward the dock, as to not fuck up the steering oar. Thus, starboard and port.

    Because then it would change depending which end of the boat you were facing, starboard is always starboard no matter what :dontknow:

    My name isn't Brad, but you're old and senile so I can look past that. I remember that shit from bootcamp. That information is absolutely relevant.
