It doesn't have to be from a seafarer 29, but it would be much simpler it it was. The shrouds and stays are often very different for different boats, and the mast off of another boat may need some serious modification to fit/work properly on this boat. Also, the sails, if any, won't fit unless the mast and boom are very close in specifications to the originals.

Finally, I would seriously question how great a shape the hull is in, if the mast and rigging went missing. You should probably be asking how that happened.

Most bargain boats rarely are. They often will cost far more to restore/repair than buying the same boat in ready to sail shape.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
