Quotes from Captain Mayer;
- When I was a Scientology fleet captain in 1973 and 1974, we had only two ships and another small boat in the U.S. Pacific Flotilla, but we were getting ready to have additional ships in Mexico and San Francisco and part of my assignment was to put a fleet together and to coordinate activities in training programs, staff analysis and establishment of the flotilla.
- I just put together a credit collection team and then started hitting the movie studios and others connected with the record companies to rent out use of the U.S. ships. At this time I was captain of the Excalibur which was an old navy ship. I had it rented out to a few movie studios and had money coming in. Indeed, we were making so much money that Scientology could not prove the ship was not financially viable because we were getting all this collection money.
- Compared to my Flagship, the Excalibur, it was a veritable garbage scow when I arrived at Flag to assist then Director of Maritime Operations, Commander Robert F. Young, in getting the Apollo cleaned up, ship-shape (and unknown to me, ready for sale on arrival in the U.S.).
