Partially true, though they were still able to see it from half a mile away. The captain unfortunately was too proud to slow down and kept sailing ahead at 20 knots. I'm no captain, but I don't think any sensible person would go faster than ten with any kind of impaired visibility at night like that.
Now enough of this bickering, there are almost four sides to this argument and we're getting nowhere.
