Tags: See more , See less 8 Answer Add Tags Answer Interview Answer 3 Answers ▲ 1 ▼ Drops. Interview Candidate on Jan 22, 2012 ▲ 0 ▼ Nothing happened to the water level because its a flowing river, not a standing body of water. Anonymous on Jan 26, 2012 ▲ 0 ▼ Well which is it a river or a lake? Depends on the mass of and volume of the anchor. Is the mass enough to use the boat to displace more water than the volume of water displaced by the anchor being moved into the water?
