Exactly. In much the same way, children in the USA commonly played "cowboys and indians", or "soldiers". What more natural for children growing up "messing about in boats' than to play "Pirates"; the Amazons also did, although they didn't grow out of it (possibly due to social or geographic isolation from other vacation-time playmates, who might have introduced other interests).
