Just my 2 cents worth.
Why so paranoid? It's perfectly legal, no tech log entry necessary after you've dispatched. Any professional engineer will have no hesitation to advise you to go or not go, in writing, or on a recorded phone conversation.

I'm glad I work with sensible professionals who are not afraid to offer sensible advise or take sensible decisions. Also in writing when requested.
