Can ships ever be too large to float?

    How easily an object floats or it’s buoyancy is more a factor of it’s shape and composition then it’s size. Wide objects with more surface area will tend to float better, this is why a leaf will float but a stick won’t. If an object is dense then it is less likely to float, this is why ships have compartments filled with air to decrease their density.
