That seems to be the general opinion. Some variety of cypress would be a nice water resistant wood to work with.

I don’t believe the wooden vessel sitting on top of the modern barge would be able to support the weight of the animals. I know a thing or two about ships and it looks like an ark-shaped building sitting on top of a modern barge.

I’ve seen and heard the floating box theory before, but there’s a reason why modern barges (i.e. floating boxes) aren’t taken into the open ocean.

Very cool, and to think that God inspired this man to do it too. Very cool God. God bless Mr. Huibers.

I’m impressed...even just by the structure of this thing.

IIRC, haven’t naval engineers generally attested that constructed
properly after the information in The Scriptures, that “Noah’s Ark”
would be seaworthy?

I’m not knocking the good fellow that did this...just saying it
was probably not the best allocation of financial resources
(e.g., build a clinic in some poor place that really needs it).

But I’ll give the guy credit again...I’m suprised that some local/gov.
environmental officer and/or “code” person didn’t stop this project in
it’s tracks!!!

i've often thought about this...and have come to the conclusion that we have more species now than we did when the ark was originally built. For example, how many different kinds of dogs are there today? All of them are descended from wolves and he really only needed to pack 2 wolves on the ark.

Don't mistake "species" with "breed". Breeds of dogs, and breeds of cattle, are not separate species, they can interbreed.

But even with a much simplified list of what would really have been necessary, The sheer task of adequate animal husbandry is too daunting to be workable on an ark, IMHO, I haven't seen a reasonable analysis yet of how that could be done, let alone the existence and survival of species not even known to exist yet in the middle east during Noah's time.
