What are the water cannons used for on the whaling ships?

    Well, I can only assume that these are used when/if a ship is attempting to board the whaler. Usually, water cannons are used as riot control. and as such, would be useful in deterring other ships. Large cannons can spray around a hundred yards, and would be useful in knocking the crew of the other ship down, or even overboard. Many of these cannons are used remotely, so they would be useful in keeping the crew of the whaler safe, while still having a good offensive. Ironically, many of these cannons were originally put onto ships to protect the ship from pirates.
