I suggest that you bone up on Archimedes' law by following to this link where you will find Archimede's law stated as Follows:

Law of Archimedes:The buoyant force is equal to the weight of the replaced liquid or gas.

Or to this site where they also define Archimedes' law as follows:
A body partially or wholly immersed in a fluid is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces.

The Ranger 22 is a pretty nice little boat, albeit a little more squirely in higher winds (winds over about 12 knots) than non-IOR derived designs from the same era. They make a reasonably good first boat, but are not the easiest boats to sail in gusty conditions.
