I got it, but it was a wild guess - not a word I've ever used or even seen used. I stopped at 24; got burned out.

Yeah, a couple of the "made-up" words I used worked...  A couple of the longer (relatively common) words didn't come to me until the end.
I guess there's no such thing as a "moondial".

Yeah, it was kinda weird that "gannet" was rejected.  I looked up that word many years ago when I first heard Ian Dury's "Billericay Dickie".

A vaguely medical term.

Community comments are running high about young Mr. Ezersky's refusal to include the gannet. It's come up before; I have never heard of him going back and adding perfectly cromulent words to the options. People who own boats are up in arms about vang not being accepted.
