procedure for help boat float in water

Because a paper boat does not have balance to float

by making a boat and that way a boat can float anytime in water

I can make a iron nail float. Simply melt some lead and the iron will float on top of the lead. Your question seems to be with regard to how do Boats float and the answer is Bouyancy. The Boat displaces a volume of water and if the weight of the displaced water is less than the weight of the boat, the boat will float.

The term is impossible. A boat cannot float clear of the water.

up thrust and gravity

The answer is: Water resistence and thrust

The forces are: Thrust: from a propeller, impeller, sail or paddleDrag: from the water and also the air acting on the hull, superstructure, sails, mast or riggingRoll: wind and waves that move the boat from side to sidePitch: wind and waves which move the boat fore and aftYaw: can be caused by thrust, drag, wind or waves turning the boat in the horizontal planeBuoyancy: keeps the boat floating due to the displacement of the hullPlaning forces: lift the boat vertically due to aerodynamic and hydrodynamic forces acting on the hull
