momentun and it's conservations

suppose you are sitting on a boat that is motion-less on the water, what happens when someone nearby tosses a watermelon, assuming you catch it? explain this according to the law of conservation of momentum
Luis answered below.
Momentum of watermelon/ boat system remains the same before and after
Momentum watermelon before + zero momentum of boat before = momentum of boat/watermelon sum after.
