How long did the flood last in Noah's time?


According to Genesis 7:11, the starting point of the flood was calculated by Noah's age. He was in his six hundredth year, second month and seventeenth day of the month. The flood starts and concludes in Genesis 8:14 where we are told it is now one year, second month and 27th day of the month since the earth was dried. So that gives Noah and company 1 year and 10 days on the ark.
