Or they are the same person, either way, this one's definitely a troll.

Re: What is it called when a boat leans side to side

List = leaning do to unballanced loading

Cranky = very easyto list when weight is moved- fast response to weight change
Roll = when it list because of a passing wave

Many sea dogs willl say that
A cranky boat USUALLY will roll less- not sure how valid this is.

Rolling, heeling or listing, depending on the motion or the cause.

Rocking and Rolling?

So the old Rocker gets out his bike
to make a ton before he takes his leave.
Up on the A1 by Scotch Corner
just like it used to be.
And as he flies --- tears in his eyes ---
his wind-whipped words echo the final take
and he hits the trunk road doing around 120
with no room left to brake.

And he was too old to Rock'n'Roll but he was too young to die.
No, you're never too old to Rock'n'Roll if you're too young to die.
