    SW corner tripped me up for a while but glad I worked through it! Cool theme! 🚢
    • mondestrunken 14:08 · 8 months ago
      Enjoyed a lot! :)

        Tricky puzzle! All in all very clean given the grid pressure from all the themers and all the rare Scrabble letters (all the JXZYs).

          These themers were indeed particularly hard to fill around. When I finally tried this layout and saw NAVYVESSEL
          28D NAVYVESSELEach of the starred answers
          fit in completely organically (!!), I knew it was destined to work.
