|Bow Chaser: A cannon located near the bow of a vessel for the purpose of raking an enemy ship or hapless victim while she's being pursued (chased).|
|Raking: Firing cannon along the entire deck length of an enemy vessel. By maneuvering at a right angle across an opponents' bow or stern, a full broadside could be fired along the length of an enemy vessel's deck, causing much havoc. The opponent would only be able to bring a few bow or stern chasers to bear.|
|Stern Chaser: A cannon located in the stern for the purpose of raking a pursuing enemy ship and hopefully slowing her down by damaging her rigging.|
