It's possibly under extruding. A best quality might fix it...
Sorry I'm terrible at diagnosing bad prints

Don't be sorry! I'm grateful for any and all help! I've now tried a "best" quality print, and actually that was worse! One of the fins broke clean off while printing.

I have therefore given up on printing silly boats, and gone back to printing gameboy zero bits! As it was intended! Just found a cracking dummy cartridge on thingiverse into which you can clip the pi AND the powerboost! Meaning that I am now fast running out of excuses to finally assemble the damn thing!!!

Thanks all! Can I ask what software people are using to design their models? I was planning on using sketchup but have seen various reports on it making very poor models. At the moment I'm looking at tinkerCAD but if anyone has any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
Take a look at Fusion 360. Free for enthusiasts, very powerful and not watered down.
I've been trying to use this, but for the life of me I can't get any .stl's to upload into the cloud things to be able to after them. The uploads fail consistently and don't provide any feedback.

You need to import them into a mesh and then convert to BRep to manipulate. Note that it may have many polygons making standard editing difficult.
