Q.2 : there ill be no dirt in the hole

[MENTION=26437]Rajatswm[/MENTION] - 441 cubic ft.. howcome??

For Q2- When the tide will rise..the depth of boat in the water will keep on inc & dec due to the changing buoyancy..!!

[MENTION=1874]Saumya[/MENTION]:
Any how if the boat is floating in the water.. and as ladder is attached to it.. how can it submerge into the water.. yes due to changing buoyancy the boat will not be stable but that can only make the boat overturn.

regarding Q.2 it is clear that there will be no dirt in the hole.. and i assume that the hole is square as we are using a square edged shovel .. absurd but there was no other hint..
