I'm sorry but i work on these types of ship and i can tell you that fire hoses and even the Foam pumps have nowhere near the reach of a bullet are they really suggesting sending crew on deck to use a water pistol against a gun. I don't think any good Captain would even consider the option. The merchant navy has on large not been armed for many years this is because there was never really a need to be, Goverments need to get tougher on the countrys allowing this happen and if neccessary put Naval patrols that are allowed to use force in the affected areas.
