Sue Langham gives an account of her visit to the Ark Encounter. From his research, Derek Marshall estimates that the building of the Ark would have been over a very short period of 46 days based upon how fast a wood frame structure could be built with a lot of faith, help and miracles. He cites clues from scripture to support his idea. Tradition has it that it took 120 years. ICR estimates 60 years, Answers in Genesis 55-75 years, yet they built their replica in 2 years. Derek suggests that Noah would have been in a real hurry to build it with God’s help.
