Default drove with e brake on

what a dumb ass I am. I picked up my boat last night from getting winterized. got out and set e brake, talked to my mechanic and hooked on, got back in truck and forgot to disengage e brake and drove off. it is a 22 ft fibreglass boat so thought it was just the weight of the boat. thank god it was only 2 concessions. got almost home and saw the red exclamation mark flashing on dash but didn't realize that was the problem till I drove into laneway and smelled the rear brakes burning. not red hot but slightly steaming. cooled them off by letting it sit outside for an hour. now the question is did I do any damage to cable or just took some life off the brakes? I can't believe I did this. 3 quarters of the drive was at about 40 miles an hour and the rest was at 50 miles an hour.
