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.
