There is no inconsistency here. Jake could have reminded Harry to top off the water tanks, assumed it was done, then didn't learn of the failure to do so until they were at sea. But beyond that, I am a trial lawyer and if two people write out a truthful account of an incident, I can pick it apart like you did and make it look like they are lying. Not because they are lying, but because both memory and communication are not perfect.
