I'm wondering if the reason this ship started listing was that the cars on board were all on the same side?
Car carriers are a strange item - sitting high out of the water when loaded and little visible accommodation for staff as on a 'traditional' looking ship.
The Chief Officer or 'mate' is responsible for cargo on Merchant Navy ships. It is suspected that the ballast was incorrectly loaded on this ship but is does not take much error to tip one over - go back to the Herald of Free Enterprise for an example. A small amount of 'freeboard' or water captive on a deck can have an adverse affect on the stability when the ship is moving or indeed making a turn.
It will be interesting to see inside as the vehicles are usually chained in place. Some may have broken free or be hanging at an angle now. Cheap Bentley anyone?

Whether he existed or not, the direct quotes are about the prevalence of dilatory and that no fun duh mentalists worship God not the messenger.
That victims of lslam are angry that he is being mocked, they realize that they have to accept that, within legal a framework, and therefore misquote the instruction and allege a direct attack on their religion, which they then feel supersedes everything and dust off the AK47.
I say tough there is a tradition of satire in the west and therefore its like it lumpit stand for election to get it changed or go somewhere else.
The odd news story of the day is that the BBC have hunkered down even further on this.
Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers. More ramblings atleaseholdpropertymanager.blogspot.com

LOL.It's amusing to imagine what a children's party invitation seeking to create a contract might say: "I, the 'first party', hereinafter referred to as the 'birthday boy', cordially invite you the 'second party', hereinafter referred to as 'my best friend', to the party of 'the first party'.
Don't put marble floors down in the bathroom folks.
