Prologue:

The unwieldy looking craft broke the top of yet another 90-foot wave then perched precariously at the peak before plummeting down into the trough. As the bow plunged under the water, Its blunt prow coupled with its natural buoyancy pushed back and caused the stern to slip out of the natural line of its descent, leaving the vessel slightly sideways to face the next great wall of seawater. The skeg worked its magic however, and the rushing water pouring off the next titanic wave pushed the Ark back to a perpendicular course in relation to the heaving sea.
