What is Meant by Angle of List?

  > The angle of the list is the degree to which a vessel heels to either port or starboard at equilibrium—with no external forces acting upon it.

> Listing is caused by the uneven load distribution of weight aboard due to uneven loading or to flooding either part of the center line.

> If a listing ship goes beyond the point where a righting moment will keep it afloat, it will capsize and potentially sink
