Why can't they ask for 2,3 boats from fishermen rather than one boat? So they all can cross the river in lesser steps.

I was thinking that perhaps the fisherman hops ashore, lends the two children the boat and directs them to paddle upstream when they cross. Then, if they push the boat back out into the water, hopefully it float back downstream at the right angle and come back to the other side where they are. Then the adults could do the same... I guess that would take lots of math to get the angles and distances right, and you'd have to account for the speed of the river and it's effect on the boats crossing. Hoping the boat comes back really isn't that practical either =)

The correct answer is much better.

Seems a little excessive. According to the explanation we could just keep both kids in the boat and have the adults row over and both kids row back.

Father - 2 kids
2 -kids row back
Mother - 2 kids
2-kids row back
Owner - 2 kids

No need for the kids to get in and out of the boat.
