Puzzle 543: Blackbarrier Jam 17

I turn 25 next month! Not that this fact is relevant at all to this puzzle!

This puzzle has absolutely nothing to do with 25.
Very nice puzzle.

Whatever will you do when you turn 34?

Boomer: I certainly won't make a 17x17 Blackbarrier Jam with a 34 in it. Maybe a puzzle with many 3's and 4's together.

It would have to be 18x18 anyway, since the largest possible clue for Blackbarrier Jam is 2n-1.

I noticed 42 = 7 x 6. (See top-left.) :P
