The Dutch ark
Someone already has a seaworthy lifesize ark built. Well, "seaworthy" is being generous. It floats. Let's just say that.

It floats, that's true. But it only does so because it is built on top of modern steel barges

Re: design issues not a problem
Maybe we should look at some actual wooden ships that approach the supposed size of the ark? See this list, which shows that all wooden ships over 100m in length suffered from severe structural problems, even when they were reinforced with steel.
