Since Saturn has no solid land mass, could we send a boat to land on their body of liquid with an HD camera to explore?

Any camera would be crushed at that pressure
And so far beneath those clouds, what light would get through ?

It's thought that Saturn's liquid metallic hydrogen is the next layer out from it's rocky core; the pressure at that depth in Saturn's atmosphere would be crushing - to the point that I don't think we'd be able to create a probe that could withstand it - and it would be at such a deep layer within Saturn that I doubt you'd be able to maintain contact with it...

WHAT liquid? That's Titan that has methanol and ethanol streams and lakes, not Saturn. We have no idea other than metallic hydrogen what MIGHT underneath all that atmosphere.

Saturn is a gas giant. A boat would fall right through it
