At the end of Part I, we left the 44′ Herreshoff Fishers Island 31 sloop WIZARD (ex-PATAPSCO II) with nearly all her new frames and floor timbers installed—work that was accomplished with the hull upside-down after Brion Rieff had removed the ballast keel and deck frame, then turned over the hull. Now, in Part II, you’ll see what takes place next.
