Noah's Ark ... Found !!

I found Noah's Ark...









......at least a miniture version of it.

This was sitting along the road side here in Thailand,... off the beaten path...and in front of what appeared to be a stowage shed....that might eventually become a restaurant since it was located right on a small river.

There's only enough room for the gay animals.

Re: Noah's Ark...found !!

now we can argue whether it's a bluewater ark.

Re: Noah's Ark...found !!

Looks kind of tippy to me. Maybe it should be a cat..

Looks more like an unseaworthy doll house.

Re: Noah's Ark...found !!

Sure does look like it needs another hull

Re: Noah's Ark...found !!

Looks like it belongs under Nautical Oddities. Try reposting there.

Re: Noah's Ark...found !!

I would be sure to have it surveyed. I think that model is known for issues with the keel bolts, chainplates, wet deck core, rudder shaft.... Oh... and be sure to offer them 50% of asking price!

Re: Noah's Ark...found !!

And when you consider that the Arc needed no hydrodynamic features at all, might not be the Arc.

Re: Noah's Ark...found !!

I suppose it's all teak. Noah's going to have a nightmare in maintenance.

Re: Noah's Ark...found !!

You yachtie types can laugh all you want, but my ark is a 3500 year-old design with a proven track record of surviving offshore conditions that other boats (or buildings, or civilizations) can't handle. Years after your so-called performance boats self destruct, my animals and I will be heaved to, safe and sound, if somewhat foul smelling.

Re: Noah's Ark...found !!

Are they going to be able to cruise on $500.00 a month?
