I understand they will be issuing a combo ticket with The Creation Museum and calling it The Grand Tour of Stupidity.

I believe a guy built a full sized replica on one of those Dutch canals that is a restaurant/bar.
"Only hand tools used"

I don't know the size of the work crew though.
I would assume more than four.
(Noah and three sons.)

Just him and, occasionaly, his son. I went and took these pics:

Unfortunately I went on a Sunday, so it was closed on the day of the Lord...

It was to be filled with animal replicas, in pairs of course, to be shown to schoolchildren in a 'tour' that was to end on the upper deck where there was a cafetaria, and a lecture room. This thing was to be towed – it was built on top of a flat top barge, effectively a giant float – from town to town, city to city, school to school. To convert more souls. Indoctrinating, brainwashing, and conditioning still pliable, innocent kid's minds.

Found this pic of the building stage:

So it was really just a very large wooden shed on top of a flat barge. No boat at all.

Anyway, a year later it was in a port near me for a couple weeks. Apparently on its grand missionary tour. There were no thronging crowds.
I've never seen it or heard of it since.

God told 'Noah' to build a steel barge?


I must have missed that instruction.

It was fake from top to bottom. E.g. that giant bow beam (1st and 3rd pics) looks like it was one multi-ton piece, cut from one enormous tree. It wasn't. It was a hollow skeleton, covered with veneer. Etc. etc.

Then it was a perfect replica, with God's help, of course.
