Noah’s Ark replica race is on

Noah's Ark. Does Michael Gungor mean to call this a lie?

The latest full-sized Noah’s Ark replica is already taking shape—but not in Kentucky. It’s in Holland, it will float, and will have a real zoo on board.

An experienced Arkwright

Johan Huibers, 60, of Rotterdam, brings experience to his project. Six years ago he built a smaller floating Noah’s Ark replica. This model was 225 feet in length, 30 feet in beam and 45 feet in height. So it had half the length, two-thirds the beam, and one-third the carrying capacity of the original. But it actually floated and had a small petting zoo on the weather deck.

New interest in Noah’s Ark

Two recent events have people paying attention to the story of the Global Flood and Noah’s Ark. Specifically:

  1. A State tourism development board has approved start-up tax incentives for a new theme park in Kentucky. The centerpiece of the park will be a full-sized shipwright’s concept of Noah’s Ark.
  2. A Japanese industrialist has designed a new kind of “lifeboat for the land,” that people can use to survive a tsunami. He based his design on Noah’s Ark.

Ark Encounter clears final hurdle
