    In Chrome, the battleship inventory did not display correctly when solving the puzzle in Penpa+. Safari and Firefox displayed it correctly.

    Fun puzzle. This is probably the farthest I have seen a hex puzzle diverge from its square version when it comes to the kind of logic used.

    I am a bit triggered by the fact that the fleet below doesn’t quite align with the grid and if you try to highlight used fleet, it somehow intersects in an odd way, but that’s just my OCD
