In 1943, an American fishing boat has a fateful encounter with a seriously damaged Danish schooner off of Canada's Atlantic coast.
The invasion of Denmark by Nazi Germany started on April 9th, 1940 and lasted only 6 hours. The invasion was called Operation Weserubung and the occupation lasted until 1945.
When the vessel is sighted, a crewman calls out, " Schooner dead ahead". As the vessel is square rigged, it cannot be a schooner which is fore and aft rigged. No Grand Banks fisherman would ever have made this error because schooners made up a large part of that fishing fleet.
