Default Noahs Ark Found at last!!!

There is a size limit on wooden ships due to leaking between the

sink pretty quickly even in a calm sea.

Hogging and breaching are the main problems with large ships.
There have also been found ships built with cord that used the swelling of
the wood in a flexible design to minimize leaks.

Most amusing (assuming flat seas ) is that the "solution" to hogging and
breaching can be found in the middle of the USA, right where the fundie
mindset is greatest.
I've yet to see a fundie use it.

Just ask Sam Clemmons.

I read Life on the Mississippi, but I don't remember anything therein
that would help an impossibly large boat float. Incidentally, I had
to look up "hogging" and "breaching" but I already understood their
consequences. The massive flexing of the ark would make it
unfloatable in anything other than a permanently calm sea. This is
why wooden ships topped out at a much smaller size, or became somewhat
sphere-like in shape. An ark of the dimensions cited in the Bible
would only float through divine grace, which then makes you wonder why
God went through that whole flood nonsense instead of just pronouncing
everyone but Noah and his family dead. It's a good thing Hitler
didn't have a magic ark and a magic rainstorm or he might have tried
it, too.
