Re: anchor stones away ...
"Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch."
- Genesis 6:14

What's gopher wood?

the other ark
Also, the only other floating craft called an ark was made of reeds.

Was it? Do tell.

quote:
And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid [it] in the flags by the river's brink.

Exodus 2:3

That's the only other thing the Torah refers to as an 'Ark', and is probably what greentwiga's source was actually referring to.
