KHLORIS and the Ship of Theseus

If it is supposed that the famous ship sailed by the hero Theseus in a great battle has been kept in a
harbour as a museum piece, and as the years went by some of the wooden parts began to rot and
were replaced by new ones then, after a century or so, all of the parts had been replaced.

The question then is if the restored; ship is still the same object as the original.
If it is then supposed that each of the removed pieces were stored in a warehouse, and after the
century, technology developed to cure their rotting and enabled them to be put back together to
make a ship, then the question is if this reconstructed; ship is still the original ship.

And if so, then the question also regards the restored ship in the harbour still being the original ship as well.
