You can indeed fire the cannon on the Gunboat. Albeit it being the smallest of ships with artillery on it, we have found that it makes for some very interesting gameplay.
I think it would be nice to showcase the Gunboat in a future developer blog.
Sweet, sorry for the late reply. I saw your quick reply, thought about it, and whatever Unity provides for the game, hope there is likewise the potential to overcome any limitations. Even just one dev blog per month would suffice, however two blogs a month sounds good. Whatever the next dev blog entails, I hope we read about the game's early access price next. Past the green light, alright and that is great!
