Having trouble getting complex shapes smooth

Hi all. I am trying to model a complex shape that will ultimately be made in plastic. I have used a series of sketches and the boundary base/boss feature. I basically have the shape I need but when I turn on the zebra stripes, not everything lines up. I have gone back through and made all of my sketches tangent where necessary. This got rid of most of the inconsistiencies. I will attach the file so you can see what I mean.

 

My primary issue seems to be on the back of the part, and the bottom. The attached file is in rollback state but if you advance it down one more, you will see that I have even more problems when the feature is mirrored.

 

What is the best way to diagnose the issue and get the surface to blend together smooth?

 

thanks in advance.
