Moore, who after completing his studies in the MIT of Massachuset, USA and retired from the Uruguayan Navy, received his first appointment as a non-exclusive surveyor from the Classification Society American Bureau of Shipping.
Months later, in 1950, the Naval Engineer Carlos Ventura and in 1960 the Commander and Master Marine Pedro Queheille completed the stuff of this office under the name of “Pablo J. More and Associates”.
