Keel fairing

Anybody care to send me in the right direction on fairing my keel? I own a Northstar 727. I just got done blasting the bottom in prep for fairing and 3 coats of 2000E, then baltoplate or VC 17 (sail in Lake Ontario). I also sealed the cast iron keel with west system. What is the best shape for the back of the keel? Where can I get templates? Where can I get good info on selecting the right template? Baltoplate or VC17? Feel free to comment on one or all questions.

I would contact Bruce Farr and Associates. They designed the boat and would have the original drawings on file. They were great about getting me info on my boat included in the packet was a sheet that had constuction details including a small scale keel lines drawing for my boat.

Some people I''ve been in contact with have been happy with Compu-keel. They sell templates for many different designs, which might be easier than creating your own from an architect''s offsets. Their website lists what they have available and the cost.

Hi, I spotted your message on the net.

I am a member of the Farr 727 Association of New Zealand, What you know as the Northstar 727 is in fact our Farr 727, and originates out of New Zealand.

You may be interested to visit our website,
www.farr727.org

We have a members forum and would be happy to have you join in

By the way, my Farr 727, Wild! is the last Farr 727 ever built.

That is a really neat website for a really cool little boat. I have always been a fan of the 727 (I actually own a very stretched model of the Farr 727, a Farr 11.6). I was amazed at the high prices that these boats command. I don''t know what the exchange rate is from US$ to Aus$ but at 1:1 rate of exchange $16000-$18000 is probably 5 to 6 times what they sell for in the States making them a real bargain when you can find one in half way decent shape.

A couple quick questions:
Farr designed quite a few 24 footers but none that I know of were called Farr 24''s. Most of his early boats were named for thier metric length such as Farr 727 or Farr 11.6. Anyway my questions are:

-Is there a model name for your boat?
-Who built her?
-When was she built?
-Where is she located?

Thanks,
Jeff
