I really like option 3.
Also you might want to add a poll to the thread for people to vote.

I like the S letter and my favorite option is 6, with the blue background and the waves - the one in option 4 looks too much like a tribal tattoo.
I'd avoid the anchor since it might give the impression that you want to go after harbor master.
The ship silhouette is quite good looking and therefore option 3 is my second choice.

In my personal opinion, i think option #4 is the best. The other icons look too generic and can be used for icons of just about anything pirate / ship related. The "S" to me represents the Silver Skull, and the "S" is used in the title with the same font. I prefer #4 over #6 because i think it just works. :P

#3 by far, the rest look pretty bad.

I really like option 3 but there is something missing.

Letters on the icon is redundant and anchors been there done that as thats is what most people use.

3 is pretty cool as just a pic but not an icon, but I really am not grabbed by any of the choices

...maybe a sillhouette of a pirate standing on the prow of ship #3, much closer in and framed by the sun

...or do something based on the "Silver Skull" since that is your game

anchors are old and to be honest the first one sucks :/
