johan huibers building a replica ark - 2012 olympics

The half sized version

Johan Huibers, the carpenter man himself (not Jesus)

The full sized version

A Dutch self employed carpenter, Johan Huibers, has been making a full sized version of Noah's ark, after previously making one that was half size ( Only stuffed animals are on board (apart from some chickens), but it looks impressive. It should be sailing up the Thames for the 2012 Summer Olympics if all goes according to plan. There must be some serious money involved in it all (the half sized one was open for tourists).
I know Jesus was a carpenter, but l certainly don't remember him building the Ark himself. I guess I'll have to brush up on my Bible reading.
