You build and install everything but the ballast tank. You leave space in the hull for the eventual ballast tank. You trim the boat for submerged trim with an empty space that will later receive the ballast tank. You place a hunk of foam into the space, sized to get the boat to designed surface trim. Take out the foam and build a ballast tank with the same displacement. Done.
The above is the Dave Copeland method.
