Even if you found a ship approximating the dimensions in that account, it would be tenuous proof at best that the Ark story was true.
Not that you could build and maintain a ship like that. Wooden ships have an inherent limit to how big you can make them, and the amount of leakage and other problems the Ark would suffer from would be catastrophic, hugely adding to the chores Noah's family would have to undergo. If the ship floated at all.
