I like it - once again the scared minifig face is put to good use. The only thing I would have added to this would be a shark fin in the water.

Oh, and those pirates need to dust their plank every now and then. :P

And then you could put this-

To hold it up (In blue)
Then add some blue plates to make the water seem choppy,so this doesn't seem out of place. :D

Very cool vignette. Good idea. Like everyone else, I like the scared face. A shark would make it better too, you could make the fin with a couple of slopes in grey or black.

I think it looks great, even without the shark.

Hey,

Very cool. I played around with a similar idea a while ago, but could never get it to look like the side of a ship (just seemed like a big brown wall). With the inverse slopes and especially the cannon, I think you achieve the illusion quite well.
Those are awfully cheerful pirates waving goodbye to their victim. :)
