M-Wing (39) with transport

(9=2)r8c9-(2=1)r7c7-(1=4)r7c6-(4=53)r35c6-r2c6=r2c3-r9c3=(3-9)r9c7=r9c4=> -9r8c5,r9c7

The grid I show doesn't mesh with my solution because I had to copy JC's grid, I didn't have my own online.

I was not around to play this puzzle earlier in the week, however, following comments made in respect of the puzzle for the 25th June I offer the following solution :

I thought you might say that but I think a basic XY Wing to be a special case because, despite it's complexity (3 strong links) is higher than Skyscrapers, Kites and Empty Rectangles (2 Strong links), it's a more widely known move.

AFAIK we never get inquiries from people who can't solve a puzzle because they don't know about XY wings but we get plenty from people who don't know about Skyscrapers. I don't think we've ever had a daily puzzle that was solvable with an XY wing. When I used to do newspaper puzzles XY Wings were quite common but I'd never heard of a Skyscraper until I started writing a solver. So I regard a basic XY wing as an honorary basic move.
