My good friend Captain Pun has bought a new boat.

"And this is a picture of its sail!" he said, showing me this:

enter image description here "Solve the nonogram and you'll soon know what type of boat it is!"

Can you solve the two-colour nonogram to help me work out what type of boat he bought?

This puzzle can be solved without guessing. Note that cells filled with different colours do not necessarily need to have a gap between them. Numbers marked in bold are red, while those in normal weight are blue.

Finished nonogram:

These are

The flags of Finland, Laos, Austria, Georgia, Somalia, Honduras, Iceland and Peru.

Meaning the captain's new boat is literally a

FLAGSHIP, as spelt by the first letters of the country names.

  • $\begingroup$ Quick work, jafe! (Although S is misidentified here at present...) It was only while posting that I spotted a similar inspiration was behind one of your own puzzles from earlier in the year - so no wonder you nailed this one so speedily! +1 and the green checkmark imminent once that error is fixed :) $\endgroup$
