Noah's Ark Replica Owners Sue Insurers for Roughly $1 Million in Rain Damage

Noah's Ark Replica Owners Sue Insurers for Roughly $1 Million in Rain Damage

A little rain never hurt anybody, right?

Owners of a more than 500-foot-long replica of Noah’s Ark would beg to differ.

Ark Encounter, the company behind the massive vessel, is suing their insurers over rain damage. Those who know the story of Noah will recall that the Old Testament figure built the ark to survive 40 days and 40 nights of rain.

Ark Encounter filed a lawsuit in a U.S. District Court on Wednesday, May 22, according to legal documents. In the suit, Ark Encounter asks for compensatory and punitive damages, claiming that heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide on the attraction’s access road, the lawsuit states.

The company claims that its five insurers allegedly refused to pay roughly $1 million in damages.

The Ark, which sits in Williamstown, Kentucky, was built in 2016.

Noah should have thrown the rats and mice overboard when he had the chance.

Wrong design, why does it need a BOW? It's an Ark NOT A SHIP.  It's only purpose was to stay afloat - nothing else. Constructing a bow would had been time consuming with no benefit in function, the reason there's no rudder.

They also didn't coat their replica with pitch (tar) which would had made it water tight. :wacko:

This design was tested in a Navy's ship test tank facility back in the 1990's and they couldn't sink it with everything turned up full blast. (old Discovery channel documentary)

Cigar box shaped design was not only the most stable but easier to construct. And had more square feet of space to boot.

Speaking of the Ark not being a ship...

Getting into fuzzy logic here. :blink:
