The stern was filed to get a more rounded look and then paint does the rest.

The main and mizzen masts were moved aft. I cut them off and drilled both the mast and the deck to strengthen the seam with a pin as is described elsewhere for the broken foremast problem. I also cut down a little on the foremast
