    I do not think the volume of air in a ship has anything to do with the float ability of said ship. It is a function of displacement as described here: "In order for ships to journey across the open ...
  • There is an old story about a man whose job it was to follow the elephants and scoop up any fecal material they might expel. Someone asked him if he liked his job. "Cripes no, going around all day ...
