Ironic, indeed. I wonder how many xtians will see the irony in having a replica of an ark "replica" that has to be transported by a real ship. Laugh out load to the third power.

A platypus will always make things better.

Exactly. They just look like shenanigans.

Yeah, that's always the burr in the saddle of this story. We have yet to see a wooden ship that size survive rough seas and ocean swells and still keep going.

This is why, until the era of the use of steel in naval architecture, most ships never exceeded ~150 ft in length.

Not so, says Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis who argues that large wooden ships of this length are possible and seaworthy.

https://answersingenesis.org/noahs-ark/f...-reliable/

There are some ancient examples of large wooded ships - the Greek warship Tessarakonteres (137m) comes to mind as does a ~150m Roman command barge, supposed to have been built for the psychotic Caligula. But no records exist to the sea trials on these vessels, so performance is speculative. And Caligula's barge was always kept anchored in the Tiber. We have to rely on modern results for wooden naval architecture.

The chief problem Ham never addresses is that large wooden structures cannot take the bending and torsional (twisting) loads imposed upon them in rough oceans without leaking or structural failure. You can't assume an ark is going to be a perfect box afloat in a large calm swimming pool; nature just doesn't work that way. Add in thunderstorms and gale force winds - even a hurricane or two - and structures - even steel ships - fail. The Titanic broke in half, promenade to keel, because one end was simply heavier than the other. Unitl I see this ark subject to these kinds of stringent seaworthy trials, I'm not buying that it is even feasible.

Laugh out load In the US Navy, there is a person assigned to keep the ship on an even keel by balancing out the levels in the potable water tanks. He is called the "Water King".
