    Yes, density definitely does effect the buoyancy of an object.  When an object floats in water, the weight of the object is less than the weight of the water displaced when the object is submerged fully.  If an object has a higher average density than water, it has less buoancy than weight, and therefore it will sink.  But if the object has a lower average density than water, it has more buoancy than weight, and therefore it will float.
