    It's quite possible, I've never investigated, but if they were conscious of a need for regulation at sea, perhaps they wanted their feet to go where they were supposed

    The red for port and green for starboard rules were adopted by America in 1838 and by the UK in 1849. Internationally it was much later, I believe about 1890.
