Not trying to sound like a jerk, but I'm really not sure how people are having trouble with this. All you gotta do is jump into the boat, rotate camera until you see distant light, then row straight ahead. Even with your 5 second pause, you should still have enough time to get there.
Maybe try not skipping the cutscene? That might be causing your reaction delay? --- "At times we must purge things from this world because they should not exist. Even if it means losing someone that you love" ~ Deadly Premonition
Of course I tried watching the cutscene. It didn't help.
Also you make it sound so easy.
Which mode are you talking about? It certainly doesn't sound like hard mode where rowing straight is the biggest challenge in the whole f-ing game. --- It's fine to have one. It's fine to be proud of it. But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it.
