Regarding the original problem (with all pirates voting):

It seems that Billy should split the loot 99:0:1:0 to ensure a vote of 50%.  If he splits it 99:0:0:1 then Eddie has no motivation to vote for the split because he knows that he will get the same amount from Colin.  But a split of 99:0:1:0 gives Duncan clear reason to vote yes.
