Friday lunch and maintenance on a Naval vessel has been cut short. Retasked to set sail Monday, the ship is crawling with subcontractors, and everybody has a rush on.
Stores still needs painting and the Fridge Techs haven’t finished yet.

Hoppy: I’m not paying someone 80 bucks an hour to watch moisture evaporate.
Simon: We’re not finished.

Simon: Should we wait for approval?
Hoppy: Why wouldn’t it come through? I’ll sort the tags with ship staff and get ready to flash up so we can get out of here.
