Chinese and Turkish "evangelical" explorers claim they have found the wooden remains, according to this report.
...carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old -- around the same time the ark was said to be afloat....Local Turkish officials will ask the central government in Ankara to apply for UNESCO World Heritage status so the site can be protected while a major archeological dig is conducted.
This from NewYork Daily News:
"It's not 100% that it is Noah's Ark, but we think it is 99l9% that this is it," Yeung Wing-cheung, a Hong Kong documentary filmmaker, told AFP.
