I really like the ship. I think that you blended a lot of colors very well. I am not sure about the black 1x1 inbetween the center window and the two side windows. It seems a little out of place making the ship look like a bumble bee.

I think you got the shape spot on from Blue Hair's manual. Good head rails and good call on the tan decking, it looks great in photos.
A few suggestions if I may...
I would move the rigging on the foremast back a little bit (like it is on the other masts).
Also, the colors on the stern cabin seem a little scattered to me... I see you are going more yellow in the later pictures which seems like a good plan to me! Also, since you have that lovely blue strip running down the ship, I would consider using more blue in the stern cabin (maybe even in-place of the black?) Usually a blue strip running on top of a ship like that is used to incorporate a color used prominently on the stern with the rest of the ship, or so I think.

I now take on the dreaded ratlines....
Here's a couple changes around the ship.

I'm only not sure about the headrails. I would make the yellow line on the bottom (with the 1x2 plates) really a bit shorter than the one on top of it.
And I would let the 'cable' from the bowsprit go to just under the crow's nest, but that's just a minor point.
The stern (and the stern chasers there) looks great and so is the bell.
Keep it up, it's going to be a very fine ship. And as Bonaparte said with Perfectionist's ships, if you finish it soon, it can participate in the contest for the 20 best Lego ships ever.
