``````def random_row(board):
return randint(0, len(board) - 1)

def random_col(board):
return randint(0, len(board[0]) - 1)``````

If you meant this part, then they are not. I ran your program mutliple times and didn't get the same numbers every time.

Thanks, but now when I go to test the program it comes up with an error that says. "Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 29, in
NameError: name 'ship_row' is not defined"

ship_row is clearly defined, and I just ran this code a little while ago.
