nearly there but stuck on 22 and 29 ... and middle letter of 14. Am thinking 31 may be a large vessel? Late here so will sleep on it.

thanks, mattrom - I have 14 and 22 - but are there 2 clashes in 22? I believe the last clash is in 29 but am stalled on 24 and 26 - which both seem to begin with r ...

One clash in 22.
I made the same mistake initially in 18d - needed to rearrange the 2nd/3rd letters.
I have 29d. as a man's name, which parses if 'capital' = excellent.
Last clash 28/29

ah - I see what you mean about 18 - yes! (I was trying to get that word to fit 24 ...) And I had figured that was what 29 was about. Just have 26 bugging me now.

I have everything except 10 and 12, and can't parse what I have for 22 - whatever can "her letters" mean? Any nudges welcome!

It has been fun having a conversation with myself!
