If the boat is in US waters it is subject to US law.

If you told the immigration agent you are a tourist and have a tourist visa then you cannot work or look for work, or interview for work.

If you told the agent you are here on business for a company located outside the US then you get a different visa.

I have relatives working for EU based companies that come to the US frequently on company business, get paid into a EU based bank, and declare purpose for the visit when entering the country.
