Crap I used cannon balls too many times.

Anyway, whether or not you like him has no bearing on the possibility of a confrontation. For me personally, I think it's possible that Smoker may sense them with haki and begin sailing in their direction, thus signifying the continuation of their cat and mouse chase.
It could then lead to an actual confrontation. I can see a scenario where during or after the crew have gotten away from the storm, the Marines appear and begin firing. Franky prepares to use use Coup de Burst while the crew or just the monster trio handle the cannons with minimal effort. Luffy and Smoker then make eye contact. Smoker gets ready to personally attack while Franky says that the Coup de Burst is ready. Luffy smiles at Smoker, and the Sunny flies away. Smoker is left pissed.......I'd be satisfied with just this.

Considering Luffy and co being nice guys and all, I can imagine a fight between Luffy and another pirate ship, people jumping across ships and fighting it out. Maybe Luffy fights an armada under a big pirate or even a yonkou..... Cannon balls, sword fights are a part of it, but a battle in the sea with a clash of different Df fruit users.... there are so many possibilites.... without overusing the cannon balls ...
Anyways, thats what I expect, a known force clashing with Luffy very soon, either a ferocious battle or an epic escape...
i was actually thinking that Oda was saving a great sea batle for the new world. Especially since pirate crews seem to be a lot larger in the new world compared to Paradise. So i could actually see another strong pirate crew confronting the Mugiwara and then shooting cannon balls at eachother and once they figure out that both sides aren't effected by it, they begin to get closer and then bored eachothers ships and fight it out... Although i can't see it happening exactly like that even though i would like to see it... Because to me it seems that the Mugiwara never actually want to fight, they just want adventure so most of the time when they are at sea they think about just running away so that they can continue to explore the sea without any problems. The only time they get in fights is when they are backed into a corner and have no other choice...
The closest we had so far from a naval battle was the escape from Enies Lobby.
another scenario than the escape would be that they sink the marine ships but, honnestly, I can't imagine Smoker on a raft like the pirates in Asterix

One of the best moments in anime for me.

Now your link made me reread the end of Arabasta and Robin joining (I can't get tired of these chapters). And there was an interesting point that i forgot when the ship falls from the sky. The log pose change its direction and lock to a sky island instead of the fall island they were going to initially. So that means that by taking the whitestorm, they may have locked on other islands than the 3 from Fishman island.

I actually think that Usopp would be very usefull in a sea battle now that he has his pop green. I mean he could most deffinitely just shoot plants and seaweed and kinds of pop greens on the other ship and no one would be able to deflect them like the cannonballs. And since they are so small, they wouldn't see the pop green till it was too late.
surely in next chapter we will see them watching at the sea/sky/weather for about 5 pages while talking to/about the whales. then we should finally see smoker! oda,please,at least in the 3rd chapter after that one!
