The sides of a ship

Some of us may not know what the different sides of a boat are called.

I wanted to share this just in case your out on the water and the fishing Charter Captain says “everyone over on the starboard side go on over to the port side because that is where the fish are biting”.

Here is your answers to what is the different sides of a boat called.

1. Right is Starboard.

2. Left is Port.

3. The front of the boat is called the Bow.

4. Stern is the back of the boat.

5. Keel is the center.

6. Hull is the bottom.

Now that you know what the different sides of a boat are called maybe it will help you catch more fish and be Safer out on the water.

Are there any thoughts you would like to share please post it in a comment.
