A supertanker leaves port traveling north at an average speed of 10 knots. Two hours later a cruise ship leaves the same port, heading south at an average speed of 18 knots. How many hours after the cruise ship sails will the two ships be 209 nautical miles apart? (1 knot = 1 nautical mile per hour)
