Adverbial form of "port side" ("aport") and "starboard" ("astarboard")  
by TrashGum (DE), 2012-10-18, 19:17  Spam?  
- bagbord   (adverb)
- styrboard (adverb)

My approach to identify a straight english translation for the danish terms:
- bagbord  (adverb),2&query=bagbord
- styrbord (adverb),2&query=styrbord

Which are defined as: "i retning mod bagbords / styrbords side" - Den Danske Ordbog

lead into these english nautical terms:
- aport      (adverb)
- astarboard (adverb)

Which are defined as: "Over to the port / starboard side." - Wikipedia: glossary of nautical terms
The Wikipedia glossary of nautical terms says: some of it's terms "remain current, while many date from the 17th-19th century."
Wikipedia(EN): Glossary_of_nautical_terms

These are ship directions from nautical language. (like astern, aboard, and so on)
Wikipedia(EN): List_of_ship_directions

Aport and astarboard are a combination of port / starboard with prefix "a-", wich means "to;towards"

- Are these translations correct in gerneral? (please vote)
- Are aport/astarboard common language anymore (maybe limited to nautical surroundings) or are they historical?
