"Front, BOW! Back, STERN! Screw it up Squirt, and I'll throw your ass out the little window on the side of the boat!" Quint "helping" Hooper in "Jaws"
I learned "port" has the same number of letters as "left," and is defined relative to the bow.
ETA: Oops, beaten to the punch again. I'd delete, but I like the quote from "Jaws"
