A Cubit is approximately 18 inches or 1.5 feet.
At 300 Cubits Long, the Ark would be approximately 450 feet Long.
At 50 Cubits Wide, the Ark would have a width of approximately 75 feet.
At 30 Cubits High, the Ark would have a Height of 45 feet.
That's as tall if not taller than a modern four story apartment building and as wide and as long as a city block. Or put another way, it would have more than half the volume of space then the HMS Titanic. I would estimate 70 to 80 percent because the Ark is much more wider than the Titanic.
The Ark is definitely larger than a foot ball field at 300 feet Long from goal post to goal post and almost as wide.
So get your facts straight people. That's...BIIIIG!!!

The displacement tonnage of the ark, which is the weight of water it would displace at a draught of 15 cubits, would be more than 22,000 tons. By comparison the U.S.S. Salem, a 716 foot long (218 meters) heavy cruiser commissioned in 1949, has a displacement tonnage of 21,500 tons. The gross tonnage, which is a measure of cubic space (100 cubic feet is one gross ton), would be 15,100 tons.http://www.biblestudy.org/basicart/was- ... imals.htmlBIG FAT REFERENCE JUST ABOVE! SEE?
