The Vikings called the side of their ship its board, and they placed the steering oar, the "star," on the right side of the ship. Thus, that side became known as the "star board." It's been that way ever since. And because the oar was on the right side, the ship was tied to
the dock on the left side. This


was known as the loading side or the "lar board." Later, it was decided that "larboard" and "starboard" were too similar, especially when trying to be heard over the roar of a heavy sea, so the phrase became the "side at which you tied up to in port," or the "port" side.
