When you are on lookout watch, always report
everything you see or hear. Trash in the water may seem
unimportant to you, but it indicates a vessel has passed
that way. In wartime, such a disclosure could lead to the
sinking of the vessel. Discolored water may mean you
are entering a shoal area. The OOD will never
reprimand you for reporting objects but will reprimand
you for not reporting them. There is no excuse for letting
the OOD see something before you do.
