Hmmmm, helping with two lines. I don't think so. Unlike the wait staff in the restaurant, they are paid by their employee.
If they go above and beyond and super friendly, it may call for a tip. I would not be over thinking this. There are many reasons that he failed to say thank you. Whatever it is, it is NOT you.
I have sailed with my captains, and watched many captain in the fuel dock etc. I have not seen anyone pays tips.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
