Once the ship started that long sustained port turn around the bramble bank I guess the list previously noticed coming down Southampton Water was accentuated and perhaps the cargo then started to move. Perhaps tilt alarms sounded on the bridge and all hell let loose. Pilot felt she was going to turn turtle and turned hard into the bank.

Great job if this turns out to be the case. However if listing coming down Southampton Water from leaving dock side, perhaps should not have carried on in the first place.
Report into ships capsize.

Not bad speculation on my part. Looks like the ship went out most times badly weighted. As todays report speculates, had the ship sunk in mid channel, Southampton ABP would have almost come to a standstill.

Complacency and bad practice becoming accepted practice, basically. The enemy of most things offshore.

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
