Only Peuchin saw the ship sink and saw the Aurora.
Huh? What do you mean by this statement? That Peuchen was the only person in lifeboat 6 to see the ship go down? Please clarify.
Since he saw the ship then the Aurora he must have been facing north and his boat the opposite way.
I've just gone through Peuchen's testimony and nowhere is that mentioned. Where are you getting this information?
