Noah's ark Replica to set sail

Dutch carpenter who built life-sized replica of the Ark plans to sail it to Israel

Johan Huibers' (bottom left) Biblical boat complete with wooden animals, was constructed six years ago at the cost of nearly $1.6million (over £1million), and is currently a popular attraction in Dordrecht, south of Amsterdam. But Huibers told JTA earlier this month that he wants to take his creation to 'God's land', and is seeking donations from good Samaritans to get him there. Huibers planned to take the ship to Israel soon after its completion, but wildfires in Israel torpedoed the journey. Now he no longer has the approximately $1.3 million necessary for getting there.
