Income Tax Assessment Act 1997
If you receive a payment in connection with a transaction that relates to more than one *CGT event, the capital proceeds from each event are so much of the payment as is reasonably attributable to that event.

The $100,000 must be divided among the 2 events. The capital proceeds from the disposal of the land are so much of the $100,000 as is reasonably attributable to it. The rest relates to the boat.
If you receive a payment in connection with a transaction that relates to one *CGT event and something else, the capital proceeds from the event are so much of the payment as is reasonably attributable to the event.
