Since it's primarily flat, you might make it, but you'll put about a year or more worth of wear on the truck. I'd want at least a one ton dually for that job. Also, if that's a fixed keel boat, you're talking a fairly high center of gravity behind you, as well as stopping all that weight. Assuming you go across the Indiana toll road to I-69 and through at Sarina, you've got a fairly straight forward trip once you're out of Chicago.

I would certainly, at a minimum, drain the fuel into jerrycans and dump the water.
