Interesting concept; the spring bricks are some of my favorite parts.
I can however not imagine how this would fit into a ship since it takes so much space and ship's decks are usually very thin, even in minifigure scale it wouldn't fit. Besides the Captain Greenhair frigate you mentioned doesn't typically have guns on the gundeck since it isn't modular.

The best real use I can see here is indeed for a fort gun battery of some kind, there are almost no building limitations and even if you just fit 3 or 4 guns it can look great.

Then it's up to me to proove you wrong  :pir-devil:
I will make a ship one of these days (if it was totally up to me I'd make one every day)
and that ship will have those recoiling cannons in it, challenge accepted !
:cannon:
