Lashings, marooning, and keel-hauling were all widespread punishments amongst Caribbean pirates, but walking the plank is the one that most people think of when it comes to pirate justice. In fact, walking the plank happened in only a few recorded instances and those are all from dubious sources. The act of forcing a prisoner to walk the plank most likely became popularized by the novel Peter Pan, followed-up by Hollywood movies showing the deed. Walking the plank is intended to be a lethal punishment and therefore the act either occurred in the open ocean, in shark-infested waters, or with the prisoner bound (like the ninja on the shirt).
