A sailor stands at the end of a boat and looks to the top of a 100 ft mast with an angle of inclination of 40 degrees. If he moves halfway across the shop, he sees the top of the mast with an angle of inclination of 63 degrees. What is the length of the ship to the nearest tenth of a foot? (Hint:AB)?
