    This passage is from the site linked above.

    "When a Saracen ship came upon a merchant ship, the corsairs fired a broadside from the taller upper deck of their ship and soldiers armed with muskets raked the victim’s deck with deadly fire. A large boarding party, screaming and shouting curses, gathered on the long bow with muskets, swords, pikes, and knives. Terror alone often compelled the merchant ship to surrender."
