Given the comparison I think I want to be an amateur ark builder. Noah isn't just remembered as the ark builder, but also the savior of man and animal at the time. As an amateur, Noah depended on God for help, and God gave him directions.
And God promised Noah rainbows after the rains as a sign that He would be keeping his promises. Lots of good things came from the ark.
And the Titanic? Well, we all know how that voyage ended.
