Ok I'll start be saying this is not my area and there may be others that can help better or other advice from a more experienced level.

That being I kinda like this and it aint may thing, the boat is clear and has a good proportion of the frame without over dominating it. Without the cloud there would be too much sky, but with it I think it just about right, the horizon appears level (or I am on the crocked chair again). I think the boat in the water just about balances the cliffs to the left but it something I have always been told to watch for, making sure there is balance.

Nice light through it.

In my opinion, using the mental checklist that I know I think you have done a stand up job. There are others that could give you deeper advice as I said but good work.

Nicely composed shot but I think the light inside the boat is a little harsh might have been better to take it later in the day when the sun is a bit lower and less strong ?

A few pointers that I will show in the modification that I have posted. I would firstly crop the image so that the boat is in the lower right hand corner. This 'device' in composition leads the viewer into the scene. By cropping in the way I have shown in my mod it also conforms to the rule of thirds i.e. you have equal weighting between the sky, water and foreground. Lastly, I have increased the tones of the mid-range to give it a slight punch.
