The hard chine Wizard hulls are built using the conventional stringer frame method. Set up on a building frame to ensure the hull stays square it can even be built on rough ground (but undercover is recommended!)

The bulkhead cutouts are made after turning over, otherwise the bulkheads would be too floppy

 

Once all is square and faired planking is started, beginning with the gunwale/chine topside panel

 

 

After planking the hull is sheathed with a light glass/epoxy layer, sanded and painted before turning over

The rest of the build follows the strip cedar boat

Almost finished and ready to fit out and launch
