Friday Puzzles #117

I’m feeling a little below par and not really up to making up the usual half-arsed spiel for a Friday entry. So I’ll let this little Nurikabe speak for itself – I’m quite pleased with the claustrophobic sort of logic you’ll need with this one. Enjoy!

#147 Nurikabe – rated medium

[blockquote mark-up still apparently not working]

EDIT: Fully interactive version of this puzzle, as kindly powered by Otto Janko’s Java web application can be found here.
