Consider for a moment the current ratio of Max HP vs Time to Full Heal.

Even on lightly tanked boats that typically is less than a minute and in addition because the majority of heals increase resist they are like a double dip. On a properly tanked boat that is typically less than 30 seconds.

Simply put, and as any PvPer will tell you, you get about 5 seconds to kill a decently built ship in this game. Take longer than that and it becomes nearly pointless to even try.

So no, with current systems/mechanics it is impossible to get killed in PvE by sustained damage output only via burst.
