I remember doing this stuff as a kid! When we were like 11, Me and an old friend always tried to make lego boats to see who's design was better, I tried making primitive check valves to allow water to escape but not enter but those never worked. We even used things like aluminum foil and cling wrap in places to help seal the cracks between legos. Regardless it was always fun to see how our designs would fail under different circumstances.

Yeah, we thought of everything! The problem is is that legos do not make watertight seals when building the box. It will work for some time until water inevitably fills in the box.

As long as it's water-tight, and not top heavy, almost any Lego structure will float.

Iron is far denser than water, yet ships float - they are full of air. Lego bricks are also full of air - if you keep them upright, and don't let the air escape, they are buoyant.

LEGO doesn't float. You can put some styrofoam at the votom of the boat.
