It means leaning over. ==More specifically== Both list and heel refer to lean or tilt in a boat or ship. The term list is usually used to refer to a tendency of a boat to lean due to some problem of ballast or weight distribution. Heel, on the other hand, is usually used to refer to the leaning of a sailboat as a result of the force of the wind upon its sails. Hope that helps clarify the difference between the two.

That is the correct spelling of the verb form "listed." It is the past tense and past participle of the verb to list, and may be used as an adjective.Listed can mean put on a list, or the usually nautical term for leaned to one side.

The term "bulkhead" is actually a nautical term for an interior wall.

The term is "astern" as opposed to "ahead" (forward) It comes from the word stern, that means the rear of the boat, as opposite to the bow The nautical term for rearward, as in the direction, would be aft.
