What is the equation of motion of canoe stroke in canoeing sport

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

Momentum=mV

3. The attempt at a solution

My

P - D_{T}= M_{T}(dV_{crew}/dt + dV_{boat}/dt)

the Book response,

P - D_{T}= (m dV_{boat}/dt ) + M_{T}(dV_{crew}/dt + dV_{boat}/dt)

P=Propulsive force ; V_{boat}= Boat velocity

D_{T}= Total drag force ; V_{crew}= Crew velocity

m=Boat mass ; M_{T}=Total mass ( boat + crew + paddle)

thanks for your help
