Johan's Ark

Twenty years ago, Dutch native Johan Huibers had a dream about devastating floods...so he did what any sensible person would do and set out to build a seaworthy ark. It’s 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high - half the size of the Titanic. After three years of work it is near completion and he is stocking it with faux animals. He is hoping to turn the vessel into a tourist attraction and to bring the ark down the Thames River for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
