Try with this image property in CSS of background:
background-size: 100%;

Open in new window

If your image would be broken in aspect ratio, try some of these two properties:
 "background-size: cover;" or "background-size: contain;"
For example:
body.custom-background {
  background-attachment: fixed;
  background-color: #E6E6E6;
  background-image: url("http://piratescove.yourcitybeats.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Background.png");
  background-position: center top;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: 100%;
  background-size: cover;
}

Open in new window

Sorry, it is not separate CSS file in your case, but <style> code in your main file. IT looks like this, around line 40:

<style type="text/css" id="custom-background-css">
body.custom-background { background-color: #e6e6e6; background-image: url('http://piratescove.yourcitybeats.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Background.png'); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: top center; background-attachment: fixed; }
</style>

Open in new window

Change it to:
<style type="text/css" id="custom-background-css">
body.custom-background { background-color: #e6e6e6; background-image: url('http://piratescove.yourcitybeats.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Background.png'); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: top center; background-attachment: fixed; background-size: 100%; background-size: cover;}
</style>

Open in new window

(you see, I added background-size: 100%; background-size: cover; at the end)
