Just use Blender's "append" function "F4" to import the kit with the "Collection".

Step 1 

select the rig, press "N" to open the properties pane, then set the contact points using the "contact point" options.

Step 2

Switch to "pose mode" and select the main bone, then return to "object mode", select the boat then the Rig and press "CTRL+P" and select "Bone".

Step 3 (Only for the optimized version).

Use the options to adjust the physics of your boat. Note*: Enable option " Sea detection" for the boat to position itself on the water surface.

Here is your boat ready for entertainment. Use the curve to plot the boat's trajectory, then use the options as shown in the picture to animate the boat.
