    Disregard my email. I was trying to use F 5 for the the first letter and had to skip the black squares to make it work. Obviously was back solving. On reviewing my work I realized I should be using F 8, which was then consistent with the other coordinates. Great puzzle.

      Thanks Larry! Glad you enjoyed it!
    • Mike D 🤓11:52 · 3 months ago
      Woo great puzzle! I needed a little nudge from Will to confirm that I was on the right track but I really liked this one 😊
    • MamaEllen 9s · 3 months ago
      I just can’t get “you sank my battleship!“ out of my head now. Too many Saturday mornings watching cartoons (and the commercials that went with them). :-)
    • oldjudge 9s · 3 months ago
      Will is the best!
    • DIS 🤓3:09 · 3 months ago
      Will, did you coordinate (pun intended) with Muggle Meta Mondays?
    • Thomas Burnakis 11s · 3 months ago
      Great puzzle, one small nit to pick but that is for later.
