Question: A sailboat sails from Marblehead Harbor directly east for 45
A sailboat sails from Marblehead Harbor directly east for 45 nautical miles, then 60°south of east for 20.0 nautical miles, returns to an easterly heading for 30.0 nautical miles, and sails 30°east of north for 10.0 nautical miles, then west for 62 nautical miles. At that time the boat becomes becalmed and the auxiliary engine fails to start. The crew decides to notify the Coast Guard of their position. Using graph paper, ruler, and protractor, sketch a graphical addition of the displacement vectors and estimate their position.
