That is pretty neat. I could not imagine building something like that alone, for the most part.

Thanks for the link. This is a very impressive replica.
Here’s some information that might be of interest:
According to Genesis 6:15 (KJV) “And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.” According to this Scripture, his replica would be about half the size of the actual ark. And from what he says concerning the 2/3-football-field length, he is basing the cubit on 16 inches. (I don’t know if Europe’s football/soccer field is something other than 100 yards.)
I’ve always considered a cubit to be 18 inches but in looking it up it could be as much as 22 inches. As impressed as people are with the size of his replica, just think how impressed they would be with it built to the 300×50x30 cubits of Scripture and then using the sacred cubit designation of 20.88 inches per cubit!
He certainly put it together quickly (and probably had to meet building codes for the public to enter it). Of course, he doesn’t tell whether it is sea-worthy. Maybe Noah was busier with just keeping food on the table that it took him 100 years versus Johan Huibers’ four years!

Noah didn’t have power tools and made his twice the size :-))

So yes this is half scale, but it does float and he’s currently working on a fullsize version.
