Rebel XT with kit lens.  I rotated and cropped it, although it looks like it could have used one more degree CCW, I brightened it and brushed out that dust spot that's been on my sensor for the past 2 years... Any other suggestions? How's the composition?

Why not simply clean the sensor?

Fear. Fear, ignorance and superstition... Why, the very thought of messing with the innards of my beloved Rebel is causing my hands to tremble even now...

You got it about the horizon -- getting it absolutely flat isn't always a priority, but it usually is when the horizon is a strong visual element in the photo.

Other than that, for aiding the composition, I would just recommend getting closer to the boat and lower towards the water, such that the boat is crossing the line of the horizon. If you had the time and tools on your hands,  you could also increase the exposure length to about 60 seconds, to make the surface of the water nice and smooth. This effect is common, but is a powerful way of making ocean shots serene instead of chaotic.
