I can easily see the PCs showing their skill and smarts while being transported on Old Ironsides, lending a hand when the ship encounters boarders or an assault from small craft. Earning the Skipper's respect will also earn the PCs an unofficial "Friends of the Ship" status, and perhaps a chance to accompany her on a cruise or get an occasional free working passage as crew or ship's troops to her next port. This is assuming the players don't trip over themselves by trying to commandeer or capture the ship. BAD NEWS--the Captain has lots of very sneaky ways to permanently "correct" such behavior.
