I confess to viewing this one callously.
Sink them, sink them all, and leave them for the fish.
What do you do with captured pirates? What cowards.
Why that frigate did not stand back and sink the lot of them with it's 47 mm? cannon is a mystery to me.
That frigate captain would have been in deep kack if he had lost a man in that exchange.

The British, if I remember my history, used to hang them.

Perhaps that is something that they ought to do again?
