    the boat pushes down on the surface of the water with a force equal to the weight of the boat.

    the surface of the water pushes back with a force equal to the weight of the water that is displaced.

    a boat enters the water until it has displaced the amount of water that weighs the same as the boat, and that's the depth at which it floats.

    it's the same with other floating objects, such as bridges, witches, very small rocks, and ducks.
