Boston Sunday Post, May 4, 1912:
    "Mrs. Lindquist (Honkanen) was fortunate in being placed in the last lifeboat to be launched from the ship instead of the second to the last, as she says the other was overturned just as it was being lowered into the water and all in it were lost.  It was only a matter of a few seconds between the time that boat was lowered and the one she was in was launched.
    .... The men at the oars had time to get
the boat but a short distance away from the ill-fated ship."

"A short distance" cuts the choices down.  It's possible she saw a collapsible boat, and heard later that one was found overturned and assumed that was it. The forward starboard boats were all gone before they started to load C, but boats 2 and 4 were close by when Collapsible D was launched. She says they didn't have time to get far away, which sounds more like #4 since #2 pulled around to the other side while #4 only pulled off a little ways.

Most or us voted for unknown lifeboat, though we also had votes for #4.
