A sailboat with a sick passenger abroad is following a parabolic path given by the equation y=-x^2+4x+3

The boat’s captain sent out a distress signal. A speedboat is trying to catch the sailboat to provide medical aid and is on a path given by the linear equation y=x+3 Besides the y-intercept (starting location) where do the paths of the two boats cross?
