I have an AP task that will be about 2-3 days late. How long does SETI wait before it will not accept the results?

SETI immediately sends out the WU to a third wingman. If you return a valid result before the third wingman, you will be credited. If the third wingman susequently also returns a valid result, he will also be credited.

At least that is the way it is supposed to work. It usually does.

Therefore, by inference, if the third wingman sends his result in before I can, then my result would not count, correct?

Yes, but their aren't many system that are configured to be able to return AP work in a couple of days.
