Then they abandon the ship ... ship still not heeling much. You can still walk on the decks. It becomes very difficult when heel is >18°. The angle of heel can maybe be used to time events?
Thanks for explanation about youtube ID.

This relation is known as Archimedes' principle.

So my question would be: Is it plausible that the ship somehow drifted sideways and away from the shore as it sank?
I ask that question and others on my popular web page http://heiwaco.tripod.com/news8.htm .
First, why is the floating, stable ship M/S Costa Concordia heeling to starboard on the photos or why is the ship M/S Costa Concordia heeling at all? OK, the M/S Costa Concordia is trimming on the stern (more on later photos) because the damage/flooded compartments were aft, but there is no reason why the M/S Costa Concordia should heel! Why doesn't the upright M/S Costa Concordia sink uprigth on stern and come to rest on the sea floor ... and remain upright with slight port list? The sea floor is sloping in the other direction (port) so if the ship sinks on the port sloping bottom it would heel to port ... but still remain on the bottom. And be easy to re-float, etc.
Everything is very misty! Ship flying by by night of small island (all people on island sleeping) and ripping open port bilge. Strange. Very strange! Ship's voyage data recorder that is supposed to record everything aboard was then not working since long! Ship owner then immediately accusing the Master of incompetence, etc, etc.
I look forward to the Italian incident investigation and its report.
