Zombies have an aversion to salt...so as long as you head south where the salt content of the ocean is higher...Haiti, perhaps...one should be safe

Do we need a poll on what weapons to carry to fend off a zombie pirate attack?
Everybody knows what kind of guns you need for zombies. Just like everyone knows what anchor is best.

Haiti? Hello? Talk about zombie central! Haiti is the ancestral home of zombies.

Perhaps each boat could have its own zombie security. I imagine there would be a few things to overcome in order to make it work, but why not?
Zombies can't be trained, I've tried. I worked in government for 28 years.

Maybe we don't have to train them per se.

Perhaps we could launch them at the pirates using some kind of modified trebuchet-like device on our fore-decks? I've also seen big human/zombie-sized slingshot things. We could use those.
