There are many things that effect the fire rate and fire power of your ship
Like having elite crewmen.. elite powder monkies (only need 200) .. the elite cannons are stronger.. the 55's shoot at longer range / distance from your target.. the cannon balls you use also will effect the damage you are inflicting... many pirates like to keep their cannons at top performance by repairing them with the cannon repair man... some do not feel the need to repair their cannons.. some things mate are just player choice/style/game play habits.
Remember you are the caption of your ship .. and you can set it up for what works best for you.
