I have some bad news. I ran some numbers and it's around 20% that you'll have all three pieces by turn 4, 25% chance you'll have them by turn 6 and 33% you'll have them by turn 8. This assumes no mulligans, card draw or filtering however there isn't much of the latter in the deck anyway. There are two ways to fix this:
1.Run Strategic Plannings or Opts (or Anticipates when the next core set is legal) over some of the protection spells. Casting an Anticipate for example lets you see three more cards than you would if you where just relying on your draw steps and really raises the chances of your deck actually doing something. Then you could side out the combo plan for approach and more interaction game two when your opponent brings in removal hehe. As you've said yourself Board the Weatherlight isn't ideal but fortunately there are better options.

Of all the commander available in Dominaria, this is one of the least obvious choices to build around, but one of the most interesting!
I would suggest Whir of Invention, not only as another artifact tutor, but to boost your Surrakar Spellblade and make another target for your Mystical Tutor. You could replace Deadeye Quartermaster for it. You are running just 12 total sorceries and instants and could maybe use another 1 or 2. Perhaps Wash Out for another instant, and one that can bounce threats while leaving your commander on the board. Evacuation is also good, as it leaves your equipment on the field and Tetsuko only costs 2 mana.
Well, that's all I have for now, but I think this looks interesting.

First of all, this is looking a lot better than most beginner's decks, so you've got a decent place to start from.
Second point: Pirates are a tempo-based, aggressive tribe, even the relatively slower U/B ones. You're going to have a very difficult time capitalising the late game unless you manage to play Fleet Swallower or Nezahal on curve and your opponent doesn't have an answer, so you're better off playing to your strengths and going lower to the ground. You're also 7 cards over 60, so this is what I'd recommend you take out:

You should also remove Dire Fleet Hoarder because you're not running treasure. Also, Fraying Sanity could become pretty overpowered when used with Navigator's Ruin and Raiders' Wake. Just putting out there as a potential addition. To me, Deadeye Quartermaster does not feel like it is searching for any essential piece of your deck or any artifact which could drastically change the boardstate/game. So I would personally suggest removing it.

Have you considered Deadeye Quartermaster? Grabs both Fell Flagship and Conqueror's Galleon , as well as some smaller-impact cards like Prying Blade or if you added it, it could fetch some Greaves or Boots to protect Admiral Beckett Brass.
Lightning-Rig Crew can potentially do a lot of damage in multiplayer, and isn't usually taken as a serious threat so it can sit and accrue value over the long game.
Kitesail Freebooter, although small and fragile, can mess with combo decks as well as be evasive to help trigger beckett brass. If there aren't a ton of combo decks in your meta I wouldn't run it tho.
