Ian just pointed me to an excellent link about Chinese Treasure Junks. These are ships built in the 15th century that have approximately the same dimensions as Noah's ark, and built out of wood. Pretty amazing! I wonder what these could teach us about the ark itself, if anything, and if perhaps the technology to build these came from the ark itself.
