The Sea of Galilee boat
Boats are mentioned fifty times in the gospels. They played an important part in the life of Jesus.
In 2010, CGI artist Ray Downing and his team at Studio Macbeth began work on a program titled Jesus: the Lost 40 Days, which aired the following year on the History Channel. The film depicts the appearances of Jesus to his followers after the resurrection.
One of those appearances took place on the shores of the Sea of Galilee while the apostles were night fishing from a boat.
Fortunately for the CGI team, an actual fishing boat from the time of Jesus had been discovered and excavated in 1986 on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. The boat was first seen during a drought when the waters of the sea receded.
This boat measure 27 feet in length, 7.5 feet in width, and 4.5 feet in depth. After its discovery, it was submerged in a chemical bath for seven years before going on display at a museum.
Based on this archaeological discovery, Downing and his team constructed a 3D virtual model of the boat, complete with apostles, for the film.
