Monday Mutant 69: Battleships

Ten ships (as indicated below the grid: one four-cell ship, two three-cell ships, three two-cell ships, and four one-cell ships) are hidden in the grid. The ships may be rotated from the orientations shown, but may not overlap or occupy cells which share a corner or an edge. A number to the right of a row or below a column indicates how many cells in that row or column are occupied by ships. Cells with wavy lines are "water" cells which cannot contain ships. Find the ships.

Mutant? Pretty straightforward, (and this from a guy like me who has butchred the last two LMI contests he was in).

I had fun with it, and playing out the breaking of it - but I did not see it as a mutant.

TheSubro: This is why I post Battleships puzzles as Monday Mutants.

Nobody commented on this puzzle until Pi Day was over (in Texas, anyway). :'(
