in on the Ark
The 'experts' say it couldn't be done - the Ark was
supposedly too big for timber...
Korean shipbuilding experts say it can. Following on from
their research, WWF has begun to post images of a potential
ark design. Using ordinary timber (Douglas Fir) and
conservative building strength values designed to cover poor
quality wood, the ark is looking structurally sound so far.
All done with a minimum of metal fasteners and no "iron
We don't seem to be having too much trouble putting
Noah's Ark together with wooden nails.
Just to make it harder, we increased the length of the
cubit, adding some 50% to the mass of the ark. The timber
still holds and the reason is obvious. The ideal proportions
as described in Genesis paved the way for a relatively easy
P.S. Was our ark some high-tech design dreamt up by
experts? Not really. The bulk of the design decisions were
proposed by an Australian tech teacher with no prior ship or
boat building expertise at all. No high tech analysis in the
proposal stage either - so much for it being an impossible
task. Of course, there could be many other solutions, but
this is the first one to hit the drawing board, checked
under the watchful eye of naval architect James King.
