Did both people get completely off the ship at Point B? Did they get off at the same spot? Or two different locations called "Point B"?

Is this a regular ship (travelling on water)? A space ship? Another celestial body? Were they 100 km apart also while inside the ship? Is it relevant that they are exactly 100 km apart? Would the puzzle still work for 99 km? 101?

Was the ship moving when the two men left it? Was the ship over 100 km long? Were they at opposite ends of the ship when they left it?

So the ship stopped at a certain point, and the two men left it at the same time, but because of the excessive length of the ship, they left the ship 100 km apart. Is this everything?
