What was the ark constructed of?

Have no idea what gopher wood is , going with teakthat has been pitched

Given it's dimensions would it have been seaworthy?

A 137.6 meterlong flat bottom boat : On a river yes out to sea calm okay but with a rain fall equal to.1 meteres an hour no

How would such a vessel release the signiificant waste of the animals it contained?

Just install an aqueduct system. The ducts could be open in the animal holding area . Thus the rain water flows down through the ducts the waste is shoveled into the ducts. The water then transports the waste to a holding area that allows pressure build up. then it uses the pressure to flow the waste out of the ship.No need for pump systems at all.

What about when it quits raining?

Then the ship is screwed. The rolling is also gone so any pumps that work on that effect also will not work!


Sometimes I don't know why we'd rather live than die,
we look up towards the sky for answers to our lives.
We may get some solutions but most just pass us by,
don't want your absolution cause I can't make it right

You mean ships only roll when it rains? Gee!

Ah my mistake "the rolling would diminish to a point that it would not be able to create a force necessary for your pump system to work"
