    "on the boat"  is good for anywhere afloat.

    "in the boat" is good for below deck, or in a cabin.

    "on a plane" came from the earliest passengers with the Wright brothers.  They rode seated on the lower wing center area, next to the pilot and the engine.

    Now it is used like "on the boat" or anywhere aloft or ready to go or just landed.

    "in the plane" means just what it says--inside the vehicle.
