it doesn't have to do with density ;)
it's about the actual construction of the ships
ever heard of Archimedi's law ?
that's why they ship...
no matter how much weight you put on a ship or how much it actually waits, it all has to do with pressure. If gravity + weight and other 'down vectors' are greater then the archimedi's force calculated for that weight... then the ship drowns, otherwise it floats
Its called bouyancy. the water pushed up on all the surface area of the steel that is under water. The water displaced = volume of the steel
