Physics question?

Imagine this - A big boat has a pool and on that pool there is a long ( 8-10 metres) jump.The boat is also moving. So when you jump and the boat is moving, wouldnt your body move in the air ? Im sorry if this is super obvious i just suck at physics.

    We won't jump vertically downwards

    But still we jump into the pool.

    Assuming the boat is moving at constant velocity, there will be no difference between the jump with boat under way and the boat tied up at the pier.
