In the figure, is pressure at A larger than, smaller than, or equal to the pressure at B?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

My first instinct is that they are equal because they are at equal heights, but then again, isn't the pressure at the surface above A greater than the surface above B because of the force, mg, of the boat exerted over the surface area in addition to the pressure exerted by the atmosphere? Could someone please explain this to me? Thanks.
