 Points here for the hint that "moment incliannt" might quite simply be assimilated to "moment d'inclinaison". After having discussed this with a naval architect, it would appear that there is a difference, one being the "heeling force" (moment d'inclinaison) and the other "heeling moment" (moment inclinant). A real hair splitter, this one! However, even when specialists get together, they commonly use "heeling moment" for both, hence the smaller number of hits for the above term.2 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

 Not applicable in context - thanks anyway!

disagree  Didier Fourcot: This is "moment fléchissant" and for a static moment applied on a fixed structural member

I have searched in Eurodict as heeling moment and it gave me \"moment d\'inclinaison\".

Certainly moments are created by forces( def: turning effect created by a Force F
acting at a perpendicular distance S, from the centre of rotation) however one is cause other is effect,such forces may be several but mostly we are interested in moments created by them since it indicates stability , in turn our safety at sea ..

pitching moment

Explanation:
or "moment de tangage".
A guess, according to aerospace dictionaries (Goursau, Gauthier-Villars) and to the Dictionnaire des Sciences et Techniques du Pétrole.

"Moment latéral" would then be "rolling moment".

Aircraft and ships have often very similar terminology.

Voir http://www.geocities.com/mithrys/u_sailplan.htm (fruit de recherche sur Google (heeling +moment). There are several.
I withdraw \"pitching\".

A mes yeux, quoique non spécialiste, \"moment inclinant=moment d\'inclinaison\"
