Being so far inland I doubt a seaworthy boat would be very high on my list of priorities for a while. That and I know so little about any of them I can't intelligently say anything.
However, I believe my wife and I would be about as well off as one could reasonably expect, if we were any of those who survived. Growing up and when we were first married we lived a great deal off what I killed or caught and what we raised in the garden and off the livestock we raised. We both know how to can, cold pack, dry and otherwise preserve food. We heat with wood now and both of us have about all the experience we want cooking on a wood stove. Just the way it was back then, we were no different than lots of others.
Practical skills such as hunting, fishing, trapping, preserving foods, the ability to provide shelter, a source of potable water and the ability to protect ones self will determine the survivors.
I would think a fast boat, with all the armament one could practically carry. Storage would be important, obviously, and a place to stay away from the nasty folks who are left. I belive that would be the biggest problem. Those few left would probably end up reverting to tribal societies for survival.
