Were the three bodies recovered by the Montmagny on 10 May in a boat? If so, which one. I cannot see that the bodies would still be recoverable a month after the sinking otherwise.

This article quoting Captain Johnson of the Montmagny implies they were not:

... the surface currents in this pocket I found very uncertain, but the tendency was east-north-eastward. I found bodies that had drifted only about sixty miles from the scene of the disaster after being in the water twenty-five days, whereas the Gulf Stream in this vicinity was running at the rate of about thirty miles a day... - Dundee Evening Telegraph - 14 June 1912
