							In accordance with Archimedes’ principle, the weight of the boat should be equal to the weight of the water displaced by the boat if the boat floats in the water.
When the same boat is immersed in salt water, it will displace the weight of the water equal to its weight.
There would be a change in the volume of the boat when it is immersed in the salt water. This is due to the difference in the densities of the pure water and salt water.
