This is NOT the first time they have run a story on the large boat. Every time we have a large amount of rain, someone does a story on it.NBC news is really on the ball on this one, it only took them about 30 years to find this very large boat made out of stainless steel located near North Elementary School. The 87 year old John Davis actually started this when he was in his late 50s and thinking about retirement. Mr. Davis, while marching to a different drum is actually a genius and in a sort of a cutting edge thinking person. Mr. Davis actually had one of the first if not the first bomb shelters built in Colonial Heights during the height of the Cold War tension about Cuba. About 25 to 30 years ago I sent a man named John Shealey (award winning poto journalist for Norfolk news papers and at the time a reporter and photog for the progress index) to Mr. Davis to get a story about the boat he was building. The only problem is that I knew that Mr. Davis had been kidded so much about being Noah that it made him very upset. When I gave Mr. Shealey the location of the boat and the name of the person building the boat I told him that he had fun with the neighbors and loved being called Noah. Well, to make a long story short he was interviewing Mr. Davis and getting along very well when he said, "Well Noah, where will you get your animals"? At this time Mr. Davis cussed him out, demanded he get off of the property and threatened to call the police and have him arrested.
Yes it is great to know that NBC news is on the ball and is only 30 years late on this story.
