This Giant Noah’s Ark Replica Is Stranded In The UK Because British Authorities Don’t Believe It’s Seaworthy

The floating museum can't actually sail on its own and has to be towed wherever it goes. It has been trapped by an international stalemate over its status as a "non-certified floating vessel."

Noah's Ark Replica

Verhalen Ark/The Ark Museum/FacebookThe ark was built in the 1960s. It took seven years to construct and followed biblical descriptions exactly.

Agiant replica of Noah’s Ark has been trapped in Ipswich, England for nearly two years — the result of an international bureaucratic nightmare of biblical proportions.

According to The Ipswich Star, Britain’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency impounded the Netherlands-based vessel in November 2019, less than a month after it arrived in the U.K., and have now deemed it “unseaworthy.”

When it arrived in 2019, it purportedly lacked a load line and antifouling certificate, which verifies that it doesn’t have any “coating, paint, surface, treatment, surface or device” that harms sea life below.

Still, the ship, a museum that tells stories from the Bible with quirky sculptures, remained open to the public until the coronavirus pandemic shut it down in March 2020. It had previously sailed to several other European countries without incident.

Ark Museum Being Towed

ut now, British officials have cited further concerns about its safety, including issues with its fire equipment, life jackets, and lifeboats, and refuse to let it leave. The owner, Dutch television producer Aad Peters, has been fined over $65,000 so far. And the port is fining him $700 per day that the ship remains.

However, Peters argues that the ship, which is built on a barge, has no engine, and must be towed wherever it goes, is a “non certified floating object” and is not required to “comply with international regulation.” He insists he is ready to tow it back to the Netherlands if British authorities would just let him.

As Peters explains it, there was never any need to register the vessel in its home country of the Netherlands. It is, after all, not an actual ship. But the lack of registration has caused Peters problems in the U.K., which is notably more strict with maritime regulations than the Netherlands.

If the ship had been registered in the Netherlands, authorities could grant it a one-time exemption to sail home. But because it is unclassified in its home country, the U.K. has effectively deemed it a commercial vessel, forcing it to abide by its regulations. This stalemate has left British and Dutch authorities frustrated.

Peters bought the vessel in 2010 for $3.7 million to create a “talking point” for people of all backgrounds. It is one of two replicas built by Dutch carpenter Johan Huibers in 1960. The process took him seven years, following Biblical descriptions of the mythical ship exactly.

The Dutch producer initially even carried actual animals on board but explained that they “caused too many problems” and replaced the live creatures with wooden figurines.

The last time the ark was in the news was in 2015 — when it ran directly into a patrol boat of the Norwegian Coast Guard. The collision ruptured the hull, but no one was injured.

Gee ya think only 43 pissed of with china ../////I would think the planet would be  fucking pissed at their  shennanigans ……….  43 countries criticize China at UN for repression of Uyghurs EDITH M. LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N. Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the
