The rear of the ship has five 9-pane windows and there are "bay" windows on the sides near the rear consisting of three 4-pane windows each.  The port side of the ship is completely finished with a dark wood "tiled" bottom while the starboard side is unfinished with the framed ribbing visible in the hull.  There are three dinghies or launches on deck between the two larger masts--two are white and one is brown.  Two cannons are sticking out of windows on each side of the rear (aft) deck.  Above black railing five small hand cannons are mounted on each side.  There is a tiller and a ship's wheel on deck at back of boat.
