what does it mean to have a constant acceleration does that mean that a= 0 or a=x?

I particularly need help with::::>> Suppose the pilot, starting again from rest, opens the throttle only partway. At a constant acceleration, the airboat then covers a distance of 64.2 meters in 10.4 seconds. Find the net force acting on the boat.
