Just a bit more

History on that for you. The Ark was park of an old concrete war ship build right here in Wilmington. At the old Shipyard for the first world war. These concrete ships were thought not to float and many citizens showed up along the opposite shore to see the first one placed in the river. According to the story they were all surprised to see it float and even more surprised when a wake came and got them wet. From stories Ive heard after the battleship damaged The Ark, the owners could not afford the repair bill and sold it. It is apparently somewhere in Florida. Not sure what parts are true or not, but that is the story I have always heard.
