Buoyancy is the force acting opposite the direction of gravity that affects all objects submerged in a fluid. When an object is place in a fluid, the object''s weight pushes down on the fluid (liquid or gas) while an upward buoyancy force pushes upward on the object, acting against gravity. Buoyancy certificates for all our pontoons are available.
