Capt.McSorley reported at one point as having "taken on a bad list". What would be considered a bad list on an ore boat like the Fitz? 2 degrees? 5? Next, he also replied to Capt. Cooper when asked about running his pumps that he had both of them on. As I understand it, the Fitz had 4 high capacity main pumps and 2 lesser capacity auxiliary pumps. Which of these pumps do you think he was running? Thanks in advance.
