For this you will need a good and strong ship. Henry Morgans, Blackbeards or a new Spanish warship will do. Get in a battle and make sure it is a strong ship. Also make sure that you have all kinds of cannon balls. First step of torture is to kill the crew on that ship. To do this you need grape shot. Close in and fire! Ok now the second step is to back away and hit their sails. The second type of cannon ball will do this, but make sure to back away because they might give up. After you destroy their sails back away some more and pound them with regular cannon balls, but make sure that you dont destroy them, because you will need thir booty. Just close in and they will surrender.
This is the most fun way to torture your enemy.
