Why not zap everyone onboard, including the captain, capsize the boat, and rescue the captain first? Seals should have SCUBA equipment, and could get the pirates under the water, where their guns would be useless, and detain them.

my brother works for the company whos ship it is and he told me its a fishy story that those aboard took back the ship from the pirates as they are not allowed weapons aboard.
so could the problem be that those aboard were not suppossed to be there i.e navy seals, so therefore cannot show themselves to be trying to frre the captain from the life raft.?
what happens if the life raft is not in international water therefore the american warships cannot approach without making it an act of aggression.
i fail to understand why ships, tugs and yachts still use that route and allow themselves to be captured.
