Huibers says he's considering where to take the floating attraction next, including European ports or even across the Atlantic though the latter would require transport aboard an even bigger ship.
Huibers, a Christian, used books 6 9 of Genesis as his inspiration, following the instructions God gives Noah down to the last cubit.
