Default Hybrid Hulls

Just wondering if anyone has 'shipbased' a new starship from combining two separate hulls of existing canon (and non-canon) craft ?

Best to explain this as a preposition in IMTU that vast boneyards exist of retired or salvaged ships being found here and abouts my spacelanes. By numbers produced most would likely be Sulieman Scout/Courier hulls accounting for the majority but other designs and hulls not to be entirely absent from said inventories.

An example of such hull-fusing might be two (2) 400 ton Discovery class Lab Ships and an 800 ton Broadsword class Mercenary Cruiser being refit and renovated into a composite vessel with an entirely new mission-application.
The 800 ton hull now acting as a fuel skimming capable tanker-lander, the 200 ton hulls now a dedicated jump drive tug and support platform.

IMTU the design is employed as a fuel collection and transfer team but not limited exclusively to that role, the 800 ton hull's design capable of refit for many other task specific configurations, fuel skimmer-tanker is just one possibility.
