I used Ers on 3 and 8 and a w-wing on 38 - then almost gave up. Finally spotted another Er on 3 using the T shaped hinge in B3

Code:
            
+-------+-------+-------+   
| . . . | . . . | . 3 . |   
| . . . | . . . | . . . |   
| . . . | 3X . .| 3 3 3 |   
+-------+-------+-------+   
| . . . | . . . | . . . |   
| . . . | . . . | . . . |   
| . . . | . . . | . . . |   
+-------+-------+-------+   
| . . . | . . . | . . . |   
| . . . | . . . | . . . |   
| . . . | 3 . . | . 3 . |
+-------+-------+-------+

I only saw one UR (Type 1) near the end when it wasn't needed. I guess some of the possible solutions get lost in different ways of solving.

Craig,

Nice catch on the final ER. I missed it and had a Sashimi Swordfish for that elimination. Since Sashimi Swordfish isn't in any of my lists of techniques, I had to choose another W-Wing (or one of several M-Wings). Again, Nice going.
