I wasn't stating that dumping large quantities of oil on the water wasn't effective... but it is highly illegal... the MARPOL treaty makes it so.
Part of the problem with the idea of pouring oil on troubled waters is that it takes a fair amount, and you have to keep doing it as the boat moves/drifts/blows out of the area the original oil slick is working on.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
