Shame on you, Brian! MARPOL violation!
Running water is "tenant mentality" in the real estate business. Tenants, who usually don't ever see the water bills their landlords are paying, tend to run it and let it run. On boats I think "lubberly" covers that equally well, but of course, who's to say that Jane didn't make yet another gibberation by typing "running water" when she meant "ruining water". After all, it is ruined when you toss in the candies and Skittle it, right?
As to the Swift going about her business...Isn't that pretty much SOP? You've been told to make a five thousand mile transit, to report for drydock, and there's probably a schedule you're expected to keep because that dock costs money to stay empty. Someone says "Help!" Someone else says "No problem here, I'm the captain." so what do you do? File a report and keep on schedule. Really doesn't seem so peculiar, absent a verbatim log of the communications.
