Space wasn't the issue.
Buoyancy was the issue.


Buoy·an·cy
noun \ˈbȯi-ən(t)-sē, ˈbü-yən(t)-\
Definition of BUOYANCY
1
a : the tendency of a body to float or to rise when submerged in a fluid
b : the power of a fluid to exert an upward force on a body placed in it; also : the upward force exerted


The area of the floating object is irrelevant. The buoyancy of the object is finite.Put more weight on the object than it's buoyancy can displace, it sinks.

Your diagram is invalid.

Actually, buoyancy is determined by density, not mass. Like a pound of feathers and a pound of lead, one would float and the other, well.....wouldn't

density and the area of contact with water

it was not the fact if there was enough space it is the fact that if he did go on would it still be able to float holding the weight of two people instead of one

Mythbusters did this already. They showed that the door alone would have sunk. Enough of this.
