Abstract:
When California native Chuck McKinnon moved to North Carolina on business, he decided to design a cement boat in his spare time. He had to move back to California before he could finish it, so he left the boat in the backyard of A. D. Cobb in Guilford County because of its proximity to the building site. The boat is forty-five feet long, twelve feet deep, and twelve feet wide, which causes locals to refer to it as the ark. Cobb would love to put the boat in the water, but it was docked on land upside-down.
