Debugging a cost distance tool in a model.

I'm working on a GIS project, in ArcMap 10.1, showing maritime search and rescue coverage in a given area and I'm having difficultly with my cost distance tool ignoring the maximum distance line since it's then telling small rescue boats can travel the Pacific. I know the probably could but for the sake of the project they need to be limited by their listed range.

To try to get this result I'm taking a start point (the base), a simple raster mask, a rage defining buffer, and the range in meters converted from nautical miles. It's the last and to a lesser degree the buffer that are being ignored in the result. Any thoughts or questions?
