    Just a guess. I was trying to verbally describe what I was drawing,
    Then I have trouble with your solution.  If the boat doesn't move at all,
    the storm will reach it's CPA in 4.4 hours  (110 nm / 25 kts)
    If the boat travels at right angles to the course of the storm for 4.4
    hours, it ends up 52.8 nm from its point of decision.
    I don't believe the difference is accounted for by the storm's CPA to the
    original position.
    I thought the original solution was on the right track.
    Isn't this a vector problem?
