Looking at the replay, Jammin is hoisting the spi, just as he is given the pen, and after that he bearly makes the mark with the spi. PC finds that Jammin is sailing his prober course, in order to put up the spi, as soon as possible. If one look at Batboat when puts up the spi, he actually has to sail a course below the mark, so it looks like he put it up to early. That further indicates to the PC, that Jammin is sailing his prober course, is order to put up the spi as soon as he can.

Jammin pen cancel accepted, no further action.
