Default Ark plans?

We've had about 12" of rain in the past 24 hours and I'm thinking maybe I need to stop my current projects and start building an ark. It wouldn't need to be the full 300 cubits x 50 cubits since there's just my wife, myself, a dog, and a couple of cats. Anybody got the scaled down plans?

I had some but they got done in when the basement flooded.

Hi Oliver. I understand plans are no longer available, but you should be able to come up with something just from the photo.

Why do I have a bad feeling this is going to be captured in an upcoming project??? an animated ark in the ACME theme, perhaps?

I know your pain, I have had to bring in a bunch of soil to replace all that has been washed away this spring. Rough winter, wet spring, 2 big dogs that love running in the mud... the grass in the yard has been torn up and all the bare ground is washing away!

Maybe Doug could lend you one of his boats.......

BTW, Doug, how was the trip back to Singapore?

Hmmm ... floating beverage holder ... if you're going to wash away, you may as well go in style. This has potential.

We survived, I am amazed at how few problems we've had considering all of the systems that were violated during the overhaul. One of our younger sisters were not so lucky, and a lot of f follow up was needed.

If we don't take the ship back there for repairs again, I won't be upset.

From what I understand the Bible numbers are a formula that works for sea vessels no matter the size. So I would suggest just scaling it down... Of course if you are building an ark and you want the birds working with you to find dry land it might not be a bad idea to build it large enough for at least a couple neighbors
