The cold-water mirage theory holds up far better than saying the lookouts were negligent. All the ships that passed through the area that day reported "much refraction" and "mirage conditions." I'd rather take their word for it than to speculate that experienced seamen didn't know what they were doing.

Lightoller had Moody ring up the crows nest at 9:30 pm and told them to watch out for small ice and growlers. They were told to pass it along to all lookouts until dawn. So they knew ice was possible.
