'Bezier Chine' is a High Tech Design - Low Tech Construction metal boat building process which enables 'one-of' builders to fabricate true round metal sailboat hulls as easily as a hard chine design.
‘Bezier Chine’, a metal boat building design process based on a computer enhanced application of 'Approximate Development'. A sheet-metal layout method, dating back to a much earlier time, used to develop 'Warp' or 'Compound' architectural surfaces onto a 'Single Plane'. This includes the Architectural sheet-metal surface of the Bezier 12.5 below.
‘Bezier Chine’ hulls are fabricated by standard metal forming practices used in today’s metal fabrication industry. The complex hull panels are shaped using a cold forming "Press Break" process. This metal boat building method is simple, consistent, and predictable. There are no vague and obscure artistic techniques.

'Bezier Chine' is a design and construction method to fabricate True Round' metal hulls. It does not just imitate a 'True Round' form, it is a 'True Round' form in every respect. just like a fiberglass designed hull. It is easier to build and requires far less metal working skill and equipment over building a 'True Round' hull by traditional means. The entire hull surface is pre-engineered. All plating fit seamlessly to a specified location on the hull framework.
'Bezier Chine' design and construction is illustrated thru the building of the 'Bezier 12.5', a small curvy, aluminum tumblehone design. In short, if this cury little boat can be built using the 'Bezier Chine' design and construction method, any other hull shape would be a breeze.
