Sentence analyse

Can you help me analyze the following sentence:

Before the boat had been underway for ten minutes, I realized that Miss Bradley was a remarkable bore.

It has to be this pattern Example When I came home, I realized that I had forgotten to buy milk. 1) The sentence is composite because it contains three clauses( When I came home (1), I realized (2), that I had forgotten to buy bread (3). 2) The sentence is complex with the principal clause (I realized) and two subordinate clauses (When I came home; T had forgotten to buy bread) 3) The type of the first subordinate clause (When I came home) is adverbial clause of time, the type of the second subordinate clause (that I had forgotten to buy bread) is objective. 4) When I (personal subject) came (simple verbal predicate) home, I (personal subject) realized (simple verbal predicate) that I (personal subject) had forgotten (simple verbal predicate) to buy milk. 5) When (adverbial modifier of time) I came home (adverbial modifier of place), I realized that I had forgotten to buy (object) milk (object). 6) When (adverb) I (personal pronoun: 1st person, singular, nominative case), came (verb: past tense, indicative mood, non-perfect non-continuous aspect, active voice, first person, singular number) home, I (personal pronoun: 1st person, singular, nominative case), realized (verb: past tense, indicative mood, non-perfect non-continuous aspect, active voice, first person, singular number) that (demonstrative pronoun, singular) I (personal pronoun: 1st person, singular, nominative case), had forgotten (verb: past tense, indicative mood, perfect non-continuous aspect, active voice, first person, singular number) to buy (infinitive: active voice, non-perfect, no-continuous)

milk (uncountable noun: singular number, nominative case)
