I wonder if these ancient mariners had to be careful about dropping the soap in the shower.

Sure, Scotland had plenty of wood to build these boats, but "covered" with "thick" forest??? Really???

Wonder if they've done a to-scale computer reconstruction of it yet?

I'll say this, "Ma ancestors had oak trees the likes of which have'na been seen in these parts for a long spell!"

That thing puts ma bass boat to shame. And it has a transom! (Wonder if they've found the ootboard motor yet...)

Interesting article, thanks for posting it.

I pretended the Early Times I was sipping as I read it was Dewars.

The Greeks of the time of Homer and Hesiod were somewhat proud of the new ship building technique involving thwarts and planks and curved hulls since it allowed much bigger and faster ships. Noah, of course, built of timbers (no mention of thwarts,) and sealed with pitch, probably bitumen, placing his home somewhere in an oily region such as California, Texas, Alaska, or Iraq. Hollowing out a log can be challenging and an amount of technology could be involved.
