I guess I need to buy an oil tanker, put a few rockets, torpedoes and sonars on it, and travel back a 100 years in time. Boy that'll revolutionize the navy.
100 years takes you to 1913, where torpedoes and long-range gunnery were fairly common. Assuming the ship can maintain range (i.e. has manoeverability and can manage about 20-25 knots) and was armed with Harpoons, then you could easily take out the whole US Navy of the time.

Take a motor boat with a 20mm cannon back to 1805 and you could sink Nelson's entire fleet single-handed!
