TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY Jan Hennop Wood is piled up by the 150 metre-long Noah's ark created by Dutch Johan Huibers in Dordrecht on June 21, 2011. For the last three years the quaint old Dutch city of Dordrecht have been watching in amazement as construction businessman Johan Huibers' dream of building a 150 metre-long Noah's ark, stocked with thousands of plastic animals, slowly grew into a reality. At an old abandoned quay on the Merwede River, about 65 kilometres (40 miles) south of Amsterdam, Huibers, 52, and a team of 50 dedicated employees are slowly putting the final touches to what they believe is the only life-size wooden ark in existence.
