Will a LEGO boat Float or Sink?

I was going to build a LEGO Orca boat (you know the boat form Jaws) but I don't know if it will float or if it will sink. The boat will contain about a little under 400 pieces. I really wish it will float but I don't know if it will. Can someone help?

Other answer:

Gerardo:
I just checked. A Lego brick does float.

So if you stick 10,000 of them together, they will still float. Possibly not very well, and it will probably leak like a sieve, and you will end up sitting on a mostly submerged raft.

But it will still be floating, as opposed to actually sinking.

Source? Just proved it with the highly scientific experiment of throwing a Lego brink in a glass of water.

perfectlybaked:
I had one that floated (albeit with a lot of displacement), but one built-by-hand probably wouldn't without some tar, lol.

This Lego boat I'm talking about actually had a solid piece like a real boat for the hull.

jimanddottaylor:
Cement boats will float, IF they weigh less than the water they displace. Figure out the weight of your 400 Lego pieces. and the weight of the water that your design will displace. I expect that it can float

Felicity:
It might be too heavy to float.
Dyer:
the weight of displaced water would need to be more than the weight of the boat
