Nice idea, stevedave, looks great. ANYTHING is better than the pixelated original plastics. The pirate flag is much more dramatic. However, to my eye, there is too much black and it doesn't fit with the rest of the game. You might try something like the sketch below. Maybe ocean waves instead of the blue?
Maybe you could turn the cannons toward the ship like HOOKED suggested. They could straddle the return lane with the front wheel on the sling plastic. Would be really cool if a red LED was sticking out the end of the cannon and it lit every time the ship was hit.

Quoted from stevedave:

I love your ideas. I am limited to one color as they are laser etched into colored plastic. It's not screened onto clear plastic. I will have a couple options just need to get logistics finalized.
I plan on having red blue white and black available but not set yet

Ok, so how about this idea. Etch on black, cut the black plastic to the shape in my sketch, then glue that piece onto red or blue sling shaped plastic. I think that might work. If I had a POTC I'd buy it! I don't have any of my games. I just like to design.

Thanks for the compliments, ralphwiggum. I had a POTC (and all my other games) but I sold them all. After 12 hour days of designing games, I didn't want to play pinball at home.
