What is the difference between List and Trim.


LIST is defined as transverse inclination of vessel due to weight of cargo on ship( generally uneven distribution of cargo in ship’s cargo hold) either direction. This is transverse inclination of the vessel. Whereas TRIM is the transverse inclination of the vessel due to wind, Current and other natural factors.

Note- In interview sometime they can ask by showing a image if it is a trim or list, Be confident and tell them its not possible to tell without knowing if the cargo is loaded uneven or if the weather is the factor even if in a image you see a bad weather in the image you cannot assume that cargo is distributed evenly.
