How to get use out of Demoship anti-building bonus damage

Demoships have bonus damage against buildings 2x base damage to be precise this rarely comes into play because you need 7/6/5 demos to take out a dock with no upgrades. This is clearly not cost-effective but if you hit a ship near a dock you can damage it as a bonus. You could use the demo on a dock in the early stage of construction in order to deny a dock without them being able to get a refund. You could also use them to destroy palisades this works even with demo-rafts if your opponent walls to the water you could use a demo-raft as a substitute to a transport ship with the added advantage of surprise, and being cheaper

It’s probably a pity bonus to say “you made it but there’s no navies to explode so have a partial consolation prize”

possible, but Even if your opponent has no navy I would not recommend using it against docks unless you think you can also kill a repairing villager. if they neither repair or have ships garrisoned the best use would probably be to scout for and hopefully deny redock attempts.
