Question of Beber (07.10.2015): What kind of vessels did pirates use?
A: Pirates used light, very agile vessels with just tonnage and therefore very quick to pounce on their victims. The pirates’ vessels were generally weighed down by merchant ships cargo, cannons and marine borers (parasites that burdened and destroyed the hull). The pirates’ vessels were usually sloops, brigs, lugger, or xebecs.
