Elements On A Boat Riddle

On a boat, there is a 15 inch brick of gold and a 15 inch brick of iron. If both of them are dropped into the water, which one of them will make the water level higher?
The iron brick will make the water level higher.

But on the contrary, in actual terms, none of them will help in rising the water. They will actually drop the water level. This is because, they have a large effect on the water level while in the boat but when they are dropped into the water. They will drop the water level. Iron brick being the lighter one will drop the water level less because it will have less effect on the water from the boat but will displace the equal amount of water as the gold when it is dropped into the water. Thus it can be said that it will make the water level higher.
