More Relative Velocity

I can't help but think maybe there's extraneous info??

Question:
A rowboat crosses a river with a velocity of 3.30 mi/h at an angle of 62.5 degrees North of west relative to the water. The river is .505 mi wide and carries an eastward current of 1.25 mi/h. how far downstream is the boat when it reaches the opposite shore?

No information looks extraneous, are you sure you listed the numbers right? As it is now it looks as if the boat would actually go upstream by the time he reached the other side
