There's this mighty sailing ship, a British frigate, cruising the Seven Seas, and one day the lookout shouts down from the crow's nest, "Captain! Captain! There's two pirate ships heading our way! They mean to attack! What should we do?"

I was going to tell a joke about a particular type of warship
You can spend all day thinking of names for maneuverable armored warships...

A man sits down at a bar next to a pirate and starts asking him about his past injuries.
The first thing the man notices is the pirate’s peg leg. “How did you get that wooden leg,” he asks.
The pirate responds, “Oh, a cannonball took my leg off in a fight with a naval frigate.”
“Wow!” the man replies. “So how did you get that hook?” pointing to the pirate’s arm.
I'm not really a big fan of boat puns
Why wouldn't you ever see a pachyderm on a civil warship?
Because an elephant never frigates.
