The Dutch carpenter who creted the life-sized replica of Noah's Ark six years ago now wants to sail the vast vessel all the way to Israel.

via BCNN1:

Plans are under way to sail a full-sized reconstruction of Noah’s Ark to Israel, it has been reported.

Devout Christian businessman Johan Huibers built the huge vessel, which has already sailed on Holland’s Maas River.

He built the boat over five years ago to the exact specifications listed in the Bible – making it 390ft-long, 75ft-high and containing 12,000 trees worth of wood.

And now, he is ready to take it to Jesus Christ’s birthplace after announcing plans to set sail to Israel.

He said: “My preferred destination for the ark is Israel.

“This is a copy of God’s ship. It only makes sense to take it to God’s land.”

Of Israel, he said: “I love the land, I love the country, I love the people.

“They don’t obey, they do what they want, they drive like mad, shove while waiting in line and don’t listen to anyone. Just like me.”
