Dutch carpenter builds full-scale replica of Noah's Ark… and he plans to sail it up the Thames for the Olympics
From the UK Daily Mail:
A Dutch creationist is putting the finishing touches on a full-size replica of Noah's Ark, which he has built according to a blueprint set out in the Bible.It is made of Swedish pine, it's 450 feet long and weighs three thousand tons.
Johan Huibers spent three years and more than £1.03 million constructing the gigantic wooden boat - and now has his sights set on sailing it up the Thames for the Olympics.
This feat of true biblical proportions was inspired by a dream Mr Huibers had 20 years ago, in which he saw part of his native Netherlands submerged in a flood like the one featured in the Book of Genesis.
