The lower the layer height the more resolution you'll get out of the waves. They can always be post processed though.
The single piece base warped when printed in ABS so I made a 3 piece version.
I painted the waves with ABS dissolved in acetone, this smoothed them out quite well. If you're using PLA painting PVA wood glue on them should achieve a similar result.
The base tiles are designed to have 3mm spherical neodymium magnets inside them. Insert the magnets then acetone/glue the tops on them.
There is also a space under the ships for a magnet. Insert this then keep it in place with the magnet covers. if you're not using the bases just glue the magnets in.
I sourced them here http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-216-Pcs-3mm-Sphere-Ball-Neodymium-Rare-Earth-Super-Magnets-N35-Free-Shipping/32269492974.html
Print the sails on paper (I used curtain blackout material taped to a piece of paper).
Either double side these or print 2 and glue them back to back.
The masts are 25mm x 1.25mm panel pins, or 1" x 16 Gauge
make sure they're steel or they won't work with the magnets.
