Firstly, though the answer is expressed as an angle "south" of west, the canoe will be traveling southeast, so the degree should be read south of east, not south of west. The ultimate velocity of the canoe will me 1.065 m/s.  The direction is 22 degrees south of east, or 158 degrees from West, but not 158 degrees south of west, since beyond 90 degrees south of west you have south. I used trig and I passed calculus so I'm pretty sure i'm right.

### When I try starting my 2014 Polaris sportmsan 570, I get a code Lo 10.6. Does anyone knows what this means

Is the engine cranking over normally (not sluggish as in flat battery) I am not familiar with the specific codes of your machine however a Lo 10.6 could relate to a bad earth which is causing a volt drop to your coil. Check all earth points for clean contact (units come off of the assembly lines with paint in places that should be clean to accomodate good earths and the only thing that is making the earth sometimes is the thread of the bolt holding the terminal in place.

### Where is the Red River? In Texas

the Red River is the second-largest river basin in the southern Great Plains.[4] It rises in two branches (forks) in the Texas Panhandle and flows east, where it acts as the border between the states of Texas and Oklahoma. It forms a short border between Texas and Arkansas before entering Arkansas, turning south near Fulton, Arkansas and flowing into Louisiana, where it flows into the Atchafalaya River. The total length of the river is 1,360 miles (2,190 km), with a mean flow of over 57,000 cubic feet per second (1,600 m3/s) at the mouth.

### Does the dark moon rise on the south side of the bay

No, sorry. The mean inclination of the lunar orbit relative to the ecliptic plane is merely 5.145 degrees. Just like the sun it rises in general eastern direction and sets in western direction, it will not touch the horizon in the south or north of any location on earth.

This result is independent of the moon phase which is solely determined by sun, moon and earth's relative positioning. The dark (or new moon) is simply not illuminated by the sun on the section visible from earth but still rises in the east.
