    A. It does if the ship still contains anything less dense than water, even a small air pocket. But clearly the net buoyant force is less than its weight, since it isn't rising.

    B. It is changing. Wind results partly from air flowing from areas of higher to areas of lower atmospheric pressure. It results partly from the rotation of the earth.
