Perhaps someone can create a educational video....

Or perhaps some highly detailed sketches of possible situations where you might question your orientation (trailer orientation that is...)

Just trying to help..

Hi, sometimes we need to paint a picture, or take one. [two]

First picture = street side.

Second picture = curb side.

If you're sitting inside your vehicle (or vessel), facing front (forward), the side on the RIGHT would be the STARBOARD side...The side on the LEFT would then be the PORT side...

As an aside...PORT is easily remembered as it has the same number of letters as LEFT, and STARBOARD has more letters, as does the word RIGHT...Also, PORT is marked on a vessel with RED lights - remembered because PORT 'wine' would be RED...by default then, the STARBOARD side would be marked with GREEN lights - STARBOARD and GREEN having more letters, etc., etc...

The PORT/STARBOARD designations are good visual references, as the 'name' of those 'sides' of the vehicle (vessel) never change, no matter what angle they are viewed from - you can call out PORT or STARBOARD and everyone knows what you mean, instead of, for example, "Go to the LH side." - LH side from what? Facing front, or facing back...Well you get the ideal...

Now that we know the names of the 'sides' - in the USA or any country where we drive on the RH side of the roadway - the STARBOARD side is commonly known as the CURBSIDE...The PORT side is then by defalt, the STREETSIDE (or ROADSIDE) of the vehicle...

Keep in mine that when you travel to the British Isles, and many of their old territories, where they wanted to be different, and drive on the LH side of the roadway - the CURBSIDE/STREETSIDE designations are reversed...But, the PORT and STARBOARD still remain the same...

As another aside, our land based, roadway vehicles have AMBER lights in the front, and RED lights in the back - helping to determine if someone is coming AT you - or going AWAY from you...good info to have at times if it's dark!

Likewise, vessels afloat utilize the RED and GREEN side lights to determine the status of other vessels nearby - crossing, overtaking, etc...

Hope this doesn't confuse all those 'non-salts' out there...

That's not a bedroom with beds, it's a stateroom with berths.

Port or Starboard

In the ref. below, "Port Side, Streetside" "Starboard Curbside" the number of letters determining left and right does not hold true to the theory as explained earlier!
Are you saying AMERICA IS WRONG, and we should drive on the left?

Things are slow today!!!!!!!!!!

Only for short periods of time when cornering at high speed.

no i wont..I'm aggravated as hell....calm..calm....calm..calm

In England..the roads are so narrow i'm parked on Streetside and Kerbside
at the same time..I find it easier driving and parking 48ft in 2 parts..
i.e. a 24ft.Lorry Pulling a 24 ft trailer..
it's easier and more fun tackling mini roundabouts
chainsaw..cut the lot in 2..more privacy..more rivets..separate lavatory..powder room and doggy parlour
no end of benefits..got more reading to do..cheerios
