Luckily for Boat, the term ‘brig’ was not used for prisons on ships until much later.
In this case, the chute led to a fully armed brigantine which had been taken as a prize. Boat, freed from the spell by distance from the enchantress, released the original crew and took the ship.
“Right, me hearties, easy as she goes bring her round slowly to give us a broadside. Aim high, I want the masts down and no way on her… Now, fire!”
Volley after volley tore through the rigging without reply.
The masts teetered and ripped out the stays tangling the pirate captain and crew in fallen bocks and ropes.
Boat swung across, grabbed the Win and the godmoding device, then let go to fall through a time portal back to the present day.
All in a day’s work for Boat (Cue music).
