Investigating ancient building technique:
Only chipping away parts that get in the way to fit logs together. Not making planks for aesthetic look.
Like a floating house, The ark was intended to be a floating warehouse to keep the cargo from getting wet – not transporting. So the bow did not have to be pointed for hydrodynamic motion.
