    Ah, nuthin’ like a good pirate puzzle. But, shiver me timbers, I thought for sure 30-Across would be ARR.

    And I believe the clue for 16-A should read “Exclamations of discovery” and 38-D should read “One who makes moans”. The last letters of each seem to have walked the plank.

    Tuning Spork: Ye’re keepin’ a weather eye for problems, and we always be appreciatin’ that. 38-D be no mistake — ’tis simply an obscure idiom and we swashbucklin’ puzzlers live for obscurity. However, 16-A be a dark business indeed. ‘Twas a typo for true and fair — ye may rest assured that our galley staff will be denied their daily portion of grog, an’ that the puzzle itself has been whipped into shape.
