Stockholm - Norwegian officials say a wooden exhibition ship built as a representation of Noah’s Ark has collided with a Coast Guard vessel in the Oslo harbor, damaging both ships.

Coast Guard spokesman Rune Svartsund said the wooden ship was being towed into the harbor Friday morning when it ran into the “Nornen” patrol vessel, which was moored at a quay.

Svartsund said no one was injured but both ships were damaged.

Photos by news agency NTB showed the wooden ship had a large hole above the water line. Svartsund said a crane aboard the patrol vessel was damaged.

According to its website, the “Noah’s Ark” is a 70-meter-long (230-foot-long) Dutch-built model of the Biblical ship, and is used as a floating museum.
