• Forty days of rain came after most of the world was submerged.


Arcing. All hulls are subject to the natural energies & prove fundamental principals experts work with daily. Elemental as water, 40 days of rain counted on and compounding, on dry ground. Are subject to consequences like re-expansion, especially on material that varies, such as a book cover compared to the pages. Encapsulated air within the tiny root fibers of peat if polymerized would resist saturation. Those without would expand until the swollen fibers choke off further water penetration. To be honest lowland peat is soft, so soft a person may force a hand right down into it. Unlike highland peat where it must be cut with tools and great effort, as it is mostly roots with less decomposition. Dry preserved ancient roots maintaining buoyancy inside a vessel for one year. Polymerized keel arcing up, creating a stable domed footing in the sea. Negotiating the power of the worst waves in recorded history. Yet imagine a thousand foot wave cresting over a ten mile hull just as tall or taller upon being arched up. A great plain of peat, rigged watertight, rising above it every time until the seas calmed. Inverse your view of the next video and imagine what they build expected to expel debris. Experts at rigging shear slopes to catch landslides. Would be the best choice of skilled people if plains of woody Peat was getting tossed about. 

Grass ropes rigged to stones, or ceramic anchoring pockets, interlinked and spread out across the landscape, actively engage the expansion of the Peat at varying depths & levels of density. Controlling & maintaining the natural cresting all keels attempt allows the planned arc. More rigging than planking on the outside, while working inside shoring up tunnels, lining functional ballasts, installing hatches and bilge pumps. More theoretical details of construction, require contemplation to follow, as the peat proposed may need many more ages to exist again. Measurements of this kind need be considered.

Much may be leveraged off a rock solid ultra lite keel. Keep stored energy release needs and times in mind during this section. For if correct, Gophered beds dry & form in place like a bow. When whetted atop and bottom, expanding at different rates. According to depth & densities, rolling water weight may determine a continuous upward flex upon this keel type. Maintaining a slowed yet constant rate of measurable arcing, set by and released at the onset & end of heavy rains. Please view linked expert Rigger, explaining the basics of rigging, using natural fibers. Key detail to note, our salt tested Elder shews us how to Multiply the strength of rope? Usable today, to fare the worst the deluge tossed about, just potentially true straight lines retaining Arcing at sea is all?

Air secured sections during water displacement cresting over the hull, every ships’ concern. Yet by time the flood crests the mountains described, how tall would the hull be expand to if rates included upward rise? Forty days of rain’s effect on a dry Peat field, grand scale? Generating greater balance and buoyancy, imagine a hollowed out turtle shaped hull, sitting in a preflooded dry dock. Readied and on the water, sides 300 cubits thick fend off the first debris flows, followed by cresting wave after cresting wave that the arcing isle absorbs the energy of and expels to rise. Reliant on a regenerating grass rope tie down system, anchoring the hulled Peat together, and limiting saturation. 

Reinforcing using embedded stone, or lighter ceramic copies as an anchor system, embedded around the hull. Held by grass ropes wrapped and bound protectively to serve at sea. Underpinning and sculpting the underside, gets labour intensive yet buoyancy is a fact of Peat, and the vessel would have to be up high enough the moving water got underneath. Interior tunnels are dug with purpose, sealed by rainwater, massive submerged open stone doorways, become more than airlocks. They become vacuum pressure anchors to the sea below the surface submitting to the motion of the waves yet not the destruction. At the right depth keeping the ship from being capsized, as going with the flow, instead less water passes over the very broad hull. Distance and buoyancy dispersing the forces at the same time they insist the hull rise. The way a submarine is one big air locked tunnel with actual controllable ballasts, pumps and venting. The real weight of the water pressing down on the outer sides would lend buoyancy to the rest of the vessel, creating arcing expansion and cresting, of mainly the center. Rising greater by displacing aggressively shedding water. During the worst every tiny bit of buoyancy counts, provided the hull remains mostly intact, how would peat fair? A modern view revealing the history of the source of rope, from natural fibers, worth watching while we think about things.

Arcing. Keel reactions used to propel a swamped vessel? Crested over, during such severe conditions, sending the raging waters through arrayed and gravity controlled intentional watercourses off the ship. Rise and gravity plays actively everywhere, even underwater, total buoyancy is a number always applied to entire object at all time. Push your rubber ducky under and it pops back up. Capture some of the energy of that rise today? Yes, experts agree, tonnes of free water pressure, directional?!. = Experts?!

Thrusters a bit reaching, yet with flooded over bow, gunnels and astern, water pressure creates power. Imagining the highland Peat to be of heartier stock, sculpted down to a firm surface, flexible and tightly knit, sealed with pitch inside and out. Two thickly braided grass rope courses would be needed to control two events. Expansion and retention, around the entire hull, accounting for complete immersion? Water would get in, yet with bilge pumps connected to, grass rope sheathed tempered clay pipes, using basic city gravity fed sewage plans? Ever see a surfer ride a curling crest, yeah and like sea turtles they need to be experts at getting in and out over the reefs. Going from ropes to concrete check out this next video about big ocean rigs.

Airlocks, water controlled once immersed, by way of heavily framed stone doorways. Installed with simple construction techniques and only truly working was submerged. Connecting with a less tumultuous point below sea level that creates also a natural vacuum anchoring effect. Holding that part of the submerged vessel in place as waves crest over. Allows a series of waterproofed ballasts to be built connecting submerged “p” Trap stone doorways, like overhead hallways. After a few doors providing access to air filled tunnel systems, using water as a pressure valve and door. Filled during the forty days of rain, it is possible to imagine inside walkways and tunnels once level, begin rising, as the center of the ship crests up. Exhausting the force and impact of large waves along retained channels controlling flow always away. Possibly explaining the two doorway sizes, among the Puma Punku find of stonework & need for thick stone.

Imagining an Ark internally immense enough to house thousands, safely berthed beyond pressure checking interior stone framed wooden doors, allows more. Digging the tunnels out a chore only possible by hand. We have a YouTube link, a local memory of construction techniques, seen in dance. Retracing, to describe, young males worked grass rope lengths in high boots. As young ladies tore at the turf with short handled pointed hoes, once found to be added to link list. In relation to building a system of vitally controllable ballasts essential to a ship facing large swells and possible submersion. Also needed was people skilled in stonework of another kind, tooling. From these basic roots, in Academic hands, cutting edges to sculpt a peat hull out of a broad plain.

There is no sacrifice to science, that we remember how the flood waters were managed, nor the bittersweet mercy granted us as a species. Measure sent good headed Noah, a plan to save us, whilst always being able to bear water?!. From all angles, baton down hatches, secure the rigging, hull coated with pitch, now remember this part of the theory. If the ark was instead surrounded by a three hundred cubit hull side thickness with the lowest deck fifty cubits thick and a roof thirty cubits thick, the inside could be hollowed out of the plain to immense imagination and benefit. If Noah’s Practicum is correct, the only way to launch a Gopher wood hull of this kind. Shaped as a Turtle or no, is by flood, from a mountaintop.

Containing a city of life inside the floating island, standing ready in a preflooded mountain dry dock, sound too good to be true. In a past conversation, my friend and elder Jacob spoke his last words to me about his friend Tata Madiba. More worldly as Nelson Mandela, once president of South Africa. In brief they spoke about Turtle Island yet questioned each other about how the legends would relate our people. Upon seeing a more widespread effort the high altitude plains of Africa have always been considered promising. Enjoy the next video showing a sailboat traveling rough seas. Then consider the scale of the vessel as island sized among thousand foot swells.

Imaging Gopher wood as Peat once, made all those I love believe upon telling. Updating Noah’s Practicum one year after the first draft written 2016. There have been several additions I hope you enjoyed. Refreshing the paragraphs and videos has allowed me time to develop the theory. Free to share and tour during construction, make sure to revisit in 2020. Hopefully by then Gopher wood will be easier to explain and understand. Thank God and the sciences for sharing the discoveries we have found about polymerization that may be the link needed to truly know Gopher wood.
