“Dutchman builds modern Noah’s Ark

Mr Huibers started work on the ark last summer

Dutchman Johan Huibers is building a working replica of Noah’s Ark as a testament to his Christian faith.
The 47-year-old from Schagen, 45km (30 miles) north of Amsterdam, plans to set sail in September through the interior waters of the Netherlands.
Johan’s Ark is a fifth of the size of Noah’s and will carry farmyard animals.
Mr Huibers, who plans to open the vessel as a religious monument and zoo, hopes the project will renew interest in Christianity in the Netherlands.
Although Mr Huibers has tried to remain true to the ark described in the Bible, Johan’s Ark is constructed with American cedar and Norwegian pine, rather than ‘gopher wood’. “
