    Yumiiko, welcome to Physics Forums.

    Your question seems to be incomplete; there is not enough information given. What are the the passengers and cargo floating on? How heavy is the cargo? Also, you must demonstrate some work towards a solution so that we can help you with it.

    Agreed. We must see an attempt at solving the problem before any help can be given.
