Ta-Da! Finished - nearly. I did tie-off some random loose rigging lines (after guessing how to do this).

The ornate base railing is custom chair rail purchased from an architectural milling company in Arkansas...that makes these handmade items in...hold on, where else? Yep, The People's Republic. Pretty decent carving and I'm glad I only had to purchase 94" worth🤯$$$. Mating the mitered corners was tricky to say the least.

I affixed heavyweight black art paper to the sides of the diorama's elevations (rear and both "sides"). The ship has dropped two anchors which are on taut lines because the wave action wants to dash the ship on the rocky shoreline. BTW: the draft on these vessels was very shallow to allow this close-to-shore loading and delivery activity. The main viewing orientation is from the offshore water perspective.
