Maybe they built their ships around these stone ships, like a template. You could make more ships, faster if you had a big stone ship you could build around. You'd have a confirmation of your measurements and cuts because the wood has to fit around the stone ship the same every time.
It could be they just built the frames around the stone ships and moved them to the ocean for finishing touches.
