It is possible to make some sense of it if we take Altenmullers findings into account - what are the different sets of boats for.

The boats south of the pyramid are for the Kings journey from east to west. He has got no use for them when he is laid to rest here in the west. It makes sense that they are disassembled - ready for being transported to the east where he would use them.

The boats east of the pyramid are for his journey west to east - the boats he needs now. It makes sense if they were, at least partly, assembled. Thus, hull shaped pits.
