When the boat is bearing down on the boy near the signal marker, the tracking radar shows it ahead of the boat but off to the right, at about the one o'clock position. As they close in on it, the distance on the radar gets shorter but it stays at the one-o'clock position. If they were heading straight toward it, it would be at the twelve o'clock position.

Flipper is a good movie that you can just sit down and watch with the little ones without having to worry about shielding their eyes at any point during it. Sure it's a bit cheesey at times and the writing is not on scale with an actor of Elijah Wood's caliber, but it is an entertaining film to watch and it's nice to see him playing a somewhat normal teenager. His character Sandy does lean towards the overly obnoxious side of things in the beginning though. So much so that you know if you were in the uncle's place, you'd take him out for a midnight ocean ride and not return with him.
