Rationale for design in terms of both buoyancy and stability
Buoyancy can be defined as the the ability of something to fluid in the water, an upward push. Buoyancy depends on weight, if the weight of an object is greater than the water displacement weight, than the object will sink. If the object's weight is less than the water's weight, it will fluid. I think my boat will fluid because it has a big volume, displaces a lot of water which means it has a neutral buoyancy.
