could you say I like the red boat more than THAT blue one?

Why is "I like that red ship better than that blue one" incorrect?

"Mi piace la barca rossa piu dell'azurra (della azurra?)"

"Mi piace la barca rossa piu di quell'azurra"

"Mi piace piu la barca rossa dell'azurra"

"Mi piace piu la barca rossa di quella azurra"

"Mi piace piu la barca rossa di quell'azurra"

Can a native speaker look over these and tell me if these are wrong and why. I'm still trying to get a handle on quello/quella/etc. When are they used and why? When do you use an ' (apostrophy)?

Thanks!
