Having played many, many games that deal with naval combat lately, I can answer that one pretty easily:
Balls = Hull Damage
Chains = Sail Damage
Shots = Crew Damage

E.g. Trying to sink a vessel, slow it down or kill its crew. Now I have no idea to what extend that is simulated in Patrician IV as you played it and not me – but that’s what these shot types SHOULD do :)
