“I dreamed that a part of Holland was flooded,” Dutch-native Johan Huibers said in an interview with Today. “The next day, I get the idea to build an ark.” That Huibers did — this brick-like behemoth of a boat is “Johan’s Ark.”
The almost-finished vessel you see pictured above is actually Huibers’ second whack at making an ark of his own. The first was a half-sized replica, though this time the Dutch construction company director decided to go whole hog. It’s even seaworthy, and Huibers plans for his ark to float along the Thames in London ahead of the 2012 Olympics.
