You certainly are in a jam. It is true that both the boat and house are valuable assets and could be sold. Using your savings to tread water is a limited game. When the savings run out, if the income problem is not resolved by then, you seriously risk losing the boat and the house.
I think the best course of action at this point is to draw a line in the sand, say six weeks from now. If you have not secured new income by that date then you will need to think about selling either your boat or your house to pay off your debts. If you can sell one and raise enough money to pay off the debts you can save the other.
I realize that might be like trying to chose which child is your favorite but better to save one than lose both.
