Ahoy! The word "starboard" comes from the Swedish word "Styrbord" which dates back to the viking days. And that's about all I know....

Did you happen to see Nemo's dad around those sail boats?

Do you mean like port, starboard, aft, stern, or what sailors say when they have been on the rum!!!

One hopes the language doesn't shiver your timber too much!

happydorkgirl 1582 days ago

Lovely on both counts!
