Listen to the advice of others, but take it with a grain of salt.

When there is a storm approaching, don't run for shore (unless you can make it), deep water is your friend.

I guess it's a good thing I'm not sailing around the world. Actually, that makes more sense having green on starboard entering, since anyone new entering the harbour will see the conventional green/right, red/left arrangement of nav lights.

I can't believe something as fundamental as it isn't standardized worldwide.

It used to be much worse.

International standards for navigational aids were established in 1977. The International Association of Lighthouse Authorities distilled thirty
different systems down to two standards.

The only difference is the colour of lateral aids to navigation. The shapes are identical.

Thrifty can work great - cheaping out and cutting corners are what guarantee failure.
