This is a toy I made for my grandchildren a couple of years ago, using plans I found at http://www.furnitureplans.com/pi_products/5110.
The design is quite clever, using partially-overlapping sections for the hull.
Plenty of bandsawing for the sections, and scrollwork making the animals

That’s cool,
I always liked the variants of Noahs ark, painted, scrolled etc. It must be the animals.

I don’t see the skunks. Who forgot to gather the little stinkers? I wonder if Noah made them ride on top. :)

Hi a1Jim – at first I thought that you had mis-spelled ‘Vice’, then I realised the pun – excellent.

You have blown my cover – after dumping Barbra, I moved to England to be out of the limelight. I also started wearing socks!
