dont know whether or not this should have been slightly off center or perhaps taken from a different viewpoint.

Although I am not a 'rules' person, I would be inclined to use the rule of thirds with a subject matter like this.

My mod shows what composition I think would work. I would also be inclined to shoot at a lower viewpoint and a wider lens.

Hello, Nick. I agree with the other Nick. I think the boats needed separating because they are the same colours and have the same buoys, so my first thought was that they blend together far too much. Shooting from the left of them, you could probably achieve the suggested composition and could also use the mooring chains as a lead-in. I'd like to have seen the top of the background boat inside the frame, and I agree with Frank about the removal of the mast cover. With a little more water on the sand, you might be able to include some good reflections, too.
