the ship of theseus?

metaphysicist.com/puzzles/ship

traditional the question seems to be approached as
after so many times that parts have been replaced - when is it not the ship of theseus.

However, is it not interesting to ask a few other questions?
eg
Was it Theseus ship to begin with?
or
What happens when we say the stuff identified as a boating object is theseus' ship?
