How to use "Hull" in context?

Hulls are the protective outer frames of ships and other watercraft. They typically consist of a number of layers of fibrous material, covered by a thick layer of paint. The outermost layer is generally one of the strongest materials, and is designed to protect the underlying layers from damage.

The original hulls of ships were made of wood. However, with the increase in maritime traffic and the advent of modern shipbuilding materials, such as steel, aluminium, and plastic, hulls now come in a variety of materials. Modern ships are often made up of hundreds of individually shaped pieces that are welded together to create a single hull.
