question about clutch on 6.7

I bought a new 3500 dually 4x4 3 weeks ago and now have 1500 miles on it.
I was pulling a boat out of the water and the trailer got hung up in the water didn't know it until I went to pull on it. My clutch went to slipping and smoking, slipped for a few seconds before I realized what it was.
how quick can you hurt a cluth on these pick ups. I let it cool down for about an hour then put the truck in four low and it pulled it out just fine.
I'm just worried that I might have hurt the clutch. Other than than I been real happy with the new 6.7. by the way it was a 32 or 35 foot house boat. after it pulled loose we noticed that the center v part of the trailer was dragging on ramp. the ramp is about 500 yard long and really steep.

You should be fine. The problem is your still breaking in the clutch. So any little thing may force it to slip instead of grip. And I didn't think it is recomended to pull any thing heavy until it is broke in properly. But then again I don't know exactly the factory requirement is. Check in you manual and see how long they give you for proper clutch break in procedures.
