A couple of years ago or so a new boat came into our marina. It was a fine boat but what was odd about this boat was her name.


I had to ask the owner what the name was all about, so over a beer or two he explained that he kept mixing up Port and Starboard, in this way he explained why he named his boat.....

Left Is Port Right Is Starboard

LIPRIS. A true story and an easy way to remember.
