Even though David Fasold has now recanted his interpretation of what he found, it still makes more sense than a lot of other scenarios. And what it had going for it was: 1. a ship design completely unlike anything in common use now yet matching the minimalist descriptions found in Genesis, 2. a site of something really big, symmetrical, man-made, and of materials consistent with such a craft, as well as numerous drogue stones littering the area.
The funny thing is that other Ark searchers knew of this anomaly and even dynamited part of it before moving on to look for something that more clearly matched their expectations of what it had to look like, gleaned, no doubt, from their early years of Sunday school lessons with their color supplements of some bearded guy opening a hatch in a hewn timber ship to receive a white dove carrying a leafy twig in its gentle beak.

It’ll be nice if the other ten Arks filled with fodder that Noah had to tow so he could keep his menagerie alive for half a year are found nearby.
