Positive buoyancy wins. It would not hold up the weight of itself and the crew if it did not have positive buoyancy. If the boat had nuetral Buoyancy then the weight of the crew would sink it even lower untill the water pressure increased to where it would go no further.
it is obvious the people who said zero buoyancy do not understand buoyancy. Maybe we should introduce them to Archimedes
