Proposed Canon

First Mentioned: WB2014 Duke Forecastle - Part 5

Wake snakes are serpentine sea monsters that follow ships in their wake and have a chance to bite through any hull. They can snatch a crewman as food through the hole they made and leave the ship to sink or founder.

They are dangerous against lone ships as they are difficult to spot from the ship's own wake but are easily spotted from another vessel and are easily croaked by the ship's beam weapons.

Real World References

Wake snakes can mean wakeboards or inflatable water sleds that are pulled on the water surface after a boat.

ABT Lures makes segmented fish lures that mimic snakes and are called wake snakes.
