Good Idea, besides the traditional official lego ships building style I know of 3 major principles:

Sculpture : using basic bricks or slope bricks to achieve hull shape ( examples: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/298034 and http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/301928

Hinged (this technique doesn't really have a name, most people refer to it as "Captain Greenhair's Frigate" (http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=30622)

Organic Ship-building : something I invented myself, so far I haven't been able to make a complete ship with it though

I have one that I'm working on at the moment. I built a prototype that was ok, but I intend to expand on the technique soon. Basically the design revolves around layer upon layer of bricks built perpendicular to the decks. It is probably easier to just see it. The next version will use a mix of this type of technique and hinges.

I think it can if you build a series of reinforcing vertical bands, just like you would in a real life ship. I didn't do it on the Nereid because it wasn't large enough to need that kind of system, and because each band was attached to the one above, below and to the deck beams as well. The next tall ship I build will for sure have the ribbing just like in a real ship.
