    Why are almost all of the ships drawing plan (eg. GA plan) showing the starboard side ?

    ivanwsd The port side got its name as the ship was docked towards that side to the jetty. Earlier, the bulk carrier (the most famous type) had cranes either on the right side of the ship or in the middle of the ship (they were not installed on the port side as this side is used for berthing). To describe the correct position of the cranes in the GA, the starboard side was drawn first. The trend is still being followed. Of course, other sides are also presented in the GA.
