The idea that the Biblical account draws on the Babylonian writings is unnecessarily convoluted.

When you read an account of an event in a newspaper, and then in a weekly news magazine, it doesn't mean that the newspaper made up the story, and then the news magazine rewrote the story based on the newspaper and the imagination of the writer. The similarities in the stories, if the reporters have done their work, will be because they are reporting on the same event. In the case of the Biblical narrative, the events, names, and details are preserved accurately because Yahweh who caused the great flood also arranged for Moses to get the accurate information.

That said, it is stupid for modern artists to imagine the boat to be of the same type of construction as a modern fishing boat.
