In such circumstance, not being able to bracket or take multiple shots (damn boats keep moving...) how would you expose?

The D850 has a pretty wide dynamic range. But in situations like this I use bracketing and continuous shooting.

I pretty much always have my camera set on continuous high so I can flip into -2 exposure bracketing, compose and press the shutter. The D850 will take the two exposures as fast as possible and then stop. I think you will find that if your shutter speed is already set to stop the motion of the boat your two rapid shots will likely work for an HDR combination.
