Suppose you would like to cross a 209-foot wide river in a boat. Assume that the boat can travel 32 mph relative to the water and that the current is flowing west at the rate of 6 mph. If the bearing chosen is chosen so that the boat will land at a point exactly across from its starting loin, how long will it take for the boat to make the crossing? Give your answer to the nearest second.
