Hey Kentyler great photos.
The only trouble is if I make a mistake everybody will know.

Here is a first attempt at a frame. I am a fun of box beams for torsional rigidity.
Maybe unnecessary but it should eliminate a twisted hull.
I am going to use 1/4" balsa for the ribs hoping to eliminate the sharp edges of narrow ribs.
I should be able to sand across the ribs and put the skin on them directly.

The plywood was a mistake. I was fooled by using 1/32" plywood on a previous model.
It turns out that 1/16 is somewhat cheaper than 1/32".
The 1/32" can be cut with scissors like card. The 1/16" cannot be cut with scissors.
The result is bad joints and bad fits. However I am committed so press on.
cheers Jim

A very original way to make a ship's hull. I will be following your thread with great interest, always keen to learn.

Very promising start!

I was not aware that there is the museum ship named after one of the most famous Polish writers

Joseph Conrad - Jozef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, born in Berdyczow.

Thanks abhovi abd strk but don't think I know what I am doing here.
This is very much experimental stuff.
I have been on the road so not much progress but some of the central ribs in place.
The ribs are balsa wood. I am hoping to avoid the hard edge of thin card ribs.
cheers Jim
