PIRATE CANNON

http://www.instructables.com/id/E9QNLVD5ZVETVPLVAS/?ALLSTEPS
Probably be a bit hard to come by a pirate ship nowadays. However, you could always make several of them, mount 'em on the back of a flatbed truck, and then give a broadside. Politician would b my first target of choice.
JOAT I am, therefore I think.

I saw a pretty nice looking coffee table that was a pirate's cannon in a wooden carriage, under a glass top. It looked like construction lumber with a dark stain and the cannon itself was laminated and turned 2Xs about 6" in diameter. The cannon probably would have looked beter had it been from a solid piece, but all the more reason to do one's own variation.

Great idea. Mount that rig on my pontoon boat and fire it off at the weekend boaters that insist on turning around within 10 foot of it while it's tied to the dock. I've thought about a water ballon sling shot but I'm afraid some %$&*&%$# is likely to escalate the fight by using a shotgun or 9mm handgun. I remember back in Arizona, two brothers in a road rage forced a guy to the side of the road. One then reached in the back window of his pickup and grabbed a baseball bat or pipe and approached the driver he pulled over. That driver, thinking it was a rifle and not a bat, pulled his handgun and mortally wounded the guy. Judge let him off. Said the guy with the bat should have expected that the other guy might escalate the confrontation. Oh, well maybe I can just rig up a water hose that permanently shoots water out ...kind of like a water spray force field. :-)

Pontoon boat would be great, room enough for several on each side. Most of the pirate boats are made oversea now anyway. Then you could always hand some large signs on your boat saying something like "danger, high explosives, keep minimum of 100 feet distance". Then if they still didn't keep away, sink one or two of 'em. LOL

Great idea, can we have one for the prats who keep circling in the "danger area, fast transit required" zone (marked on all the marine charts as such) behind our local mil range, just because they have a gin palace and don't like the sound of our rifles when we're practicing....

Well, you could put a few rounds across their bows. Or call the water police on them. Or sink one or two. Or, have a tank pull up in view and let of a blank in their general direction. Sigh, but the only one you'd be able to get away with are the water cops. Too bad.
But balloons filled with paint come to mind.
