Good catch. Indeed Pirate boarding crews won't pass through this function anyway, so it probably doesn't matter. But your suggestion does sound better. Your alternate is fine by me. Mainly just to distinguish between the two periods. Otherwise it'd be a bit samey-samey. But either way can work, so whatever you prefer. I always understood Musketoons are basically intended as "boarding-purpose version of the musket". So that's why I figured it'd make sense to put it to use there. While you're right that the "area damage" will definitely cause some serious mayhem, I wonder if there might not be an alternate solution. For example, ensuring every character in the boarding starts on his own side so that you don't begin already in a close quarters situation. So if at all possible, I would like to use the musketoons. But for the time being, it may be more wise to stick with your suggested alternate instead, so that's what I'll do. I'll leave the musketoon line in place, but out-commented, just in case ever we can make use of it as it was meant to.
