Pirates on the horizon, and Denumar is acting nuttier and more annoying than usual!
Perhaps Denumar will reveal himself and play some pivotal part in saving the ship from the pirates?
Also, how do cannons work in this kind of environment? wouldn't they actually propel the vessel in the opposite direction they fired since there is no sea water to provide a counter force against the hull?
Or do these ships have enough ballast to counter any propelling forces created by the cannons?

The cannons probably make the ship slosh around a little bit, but the force is dissipated as they never all fire at quite the same instant. The wind acts on the ship with greater and more consistent force. Still, a skilled captain with a whiz gunnery officer might use cannons to execute fast, tight maneuvers...!!
