A Boat of Biblical Proportions

A Dutch businessman named Johan Huibers has built a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark after he had a dream that his famously low-lying country had flooded. The vessel is 300 cubits long.

A cubit is an ancient unit of measurement that only people who build gigantic boats because of weird dreams they had still use. In normal speak that means this thing is measuring in at 450 feet. There’s no word on whether she has engines or not, but if she does, that would plant her firmly at number 7 in the PMY Top 100 right between Rising Sun and Savarona.
