Author/Opus: This is the 377th puzzle from our contributing puzzlemaster Grant Fikes.

Rules: Combination of Pentominous and Battleships. Locate the indicated fleet in the grid. Each segment of a ship occupies a single cell. Ships can be rotated.

Regions with the same shape (including rotations/reflections) cannot share an edge. A cell with a letter in it must be part of the pentomino shape normally associated with that letter; an inventory of pentominoes is given below the puzzle.
