From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A heavily listing ship, the Ivory Tirupati, heading for the port of Brest in France

The angle of list is a term used to describe the degree to which a vessel heels (leans, or tilts) to either port or starboard. [1]

A listing vessel is stable and at equilibrium but the distribution of weight aboard causes it to heel to one side or the other.

List refers to a ship leaning to one side under stable conditions, often caused by uneven loading or flooding. By contrast "roll" refers to the dynamic movement from side to side caused by waves.
