Navigation problem

Are there any navigators here? What is the procedure for plotting an intercept course, as in meeting another boat that is approaching from a different direction. For example, if my friend is on a steady course of 036T and travelling at 5K and I am 84NM away on a bearing of 096T and I make 7K, how do I plot a new course to intersect him so we arrive at the same spot at the same time?(assume a constant track and speed) Anyone? Thanks, John Davidson
