Buoyancy.

A Team of 6 scouts plan to cross a lake on a raft they designed.
The dimensions of each plank is 30 cm x 30 cm x 3m.
The density of the wooden planks is of .80.
The average mass of the members is 65KG. And for their safety they want the top of the raft to be 3 cm above the surface of the water. How many wooden planks do they need to complete their project?

So far i found
V1 = .248
V = .27
P1 = .8
P = .73
using V1/V = P/P1.
Total mass of cargo ( scouts ) 6 x 65 = 390 KG. I really dont know where to go from here?!?!
