The deck has been stained. In spite of lots of sanding, there was still enough glue to make the stain cover inconsistently. However, if you look at pictures I’ve posted of the deck earlier, there is some inconsistency due to weathering, so I’m not too upset.
The bulwarks were added and painted red on the inside. Figuring out the right height for the bulwarks was a challenge. Six slots for the scuppers were added on each side of the main deck. I did not completely succeed in making them perfectly rectangular.
Here’s an image of the scuppers on the real ship.
