1. Leave Jackdaw
2. Swim to galleon
3. murder everyone
4. reboard the Jackdaw
5. 1 shot kill the galleon

Effects:

1. When the ship is boarded, all enemies will be dead, resulting in an insta win with Brigs and schooners (you'll have to complete the other objectives with frigates and galleons).
2. The ship will no longer have the yellow "search" area around it as everyone is dead.
3. The ship will be damaged in a weird way.
4. You'll end up swimming for hours going after ships in the ocean.

Uses:
1. Beating that pesky galleon at New Bone early
2. Protecting your crew by first disabling the ship and then preboarding it
3. This can be used out at sea or at docked ships.
4. Hunter ships...nuff said

Tips:
1. Get the mayan outfit or stay underwater as much as possible; the shooters will stop shooting once you start climbing
2. If you don't have the mayan outfit, get your health as high as possible.
3. Highly suggested to remove ALL enemies on the ship.
4. Get as close as possible. The shooters will become a pain with the docked ships (there are no shooters once out at sea).

Enjoy

If only this worked for that pesky unsinkable La Dama Negra...

By the way, isn't this also what the Ships Commandeered stat is for...?

This is the first trick I tried when ran into my first man o war. The trick is getting close enough without hitting it and getting it to stay still long enough to board it. They turn and move ridiculously fast.

Nope. He lets go right BEFORE the battle which is basically a huge gltich. Cheating doesnt count.

Not really cheating when you can just hold down 'O' before the cutscene starts - the glitch happens when you are able to jump onto the Legendary Ship.

Admittedly I did try it but gave up after several tries of 'falling through the ship'. However the Legendary Ship just circles the Jackdaw, you cannot climb on the Legendary Ship while it's moving either.

I eventually beat all 4 Legendary Ships the proper way, even with the unfair El Impoluto which lifted it's front way up into the air and crashed down on top of the Jackdaw.
