Captain Moore's testimony and his records are exceedingly "questionable", Scott (if you are still around).Ajmal, this claim is largely used as fodder for other theories for the 'mystery ship' like the Samson; however, Captain Moore is the only person who testifies to seeing a 'schooner' at any point on the night of the sinking. Indeed, no other ship in the immediate area--neither Carpathia or Californian--reported seeing that ship, and no other ship steaming towards the sight of the sinking during the early morning and during the day of the 15th reported seeing a schooner.
Captain Moore's testimony is very questionable, and leads one to believe he is hiding something. What that is, I am personally unsure. Again I recommend the book Trial of Mount Temple if you have not read it already. That is the only book on that covers in detail the actions of Mount Temple during the Titanic sinking and after, and is very well researched.
That's a pity, Brad, However, if I may, I will continue this analysis by sharing an extract from my notes for my book.Jim, Scott last visited us last June.
