sin(29) / h = sin(90 - 29) / 2640

sin(29) / h = cos(29) / 2640

2640 * sin(29) = h * cos(29)

2640 * tan(29) = h

h = 1,463.3758958353099430468145637727....

1463 ft high

You can draw this out as triange, base of 2640, and the angle, where the ship is, is 29 degrees. Then it is simple. Write out the equation as tan(29)=x/2640 and solve for x. The answer is approximately 1463.376 ft
