Because, when every ship in the fleet springs the same hidden leak at the 
same time, the more caulkers and welders you can inform that they have a 
leak means they can attend to the leak more quickly, possibly mitigate a 
swamping, and more of those ships will remain afloat a while longer...

If you don't tell them, they might not stumble on the leak until already 

It makes sense to spread info through as many channels as possible.
