I don't see why that is convincing. If you replace one block it becomes "the original ship of Theseus minus one block", and eventually "about half the original ship of Theseus, the rest a restoration", then "a restoration of the ship of Theseus, with a few original pieces" and then just a replica.

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.
