Firing warning shots legal or not?

I''m no maritime legal expert, BR56, but I believe the idea is to aim the shot below deck height and miss the stem of the offending boat by about 6 feet - AFT!

As far as EPA, keep in mind that often boats are deliberately sunk to provide artificial reefs for the marine life to flourish. You would just be doing your eco-friendly part.
