Answer

The biblical Noah's Ark has been compared to the 'unsinkable' Titanic, although the important thing in any such comparison is that the Titanic really did exist. The Titanic was more than 800 feet long overall, about 92 feet wide and had a moulded depth of around 60 feet. The Bible gives the size of Noah's Ark as 300 cubits (507 feet) long, by 50 cubits (85 feet) wide and 30 cubits (about 50 feet) high. So the biblical dimensions of the Ark are somewhat comparable to those of the Titanic.
