dog,

I think his time to get there (10.5 hours) is correct, that is, if you assume that the ambiguous bearing info given is actually the bearing FROM the friend's boat TO your boat, as calculated in my response.

This confusion would not have existed if the original post had been unambiguous and/or phrased in the conventional way (i.e., FROM the maneuvering vessel TO the target vessel).
