Hi all , i am looking at a " fixer-upper " but the owner does not know the
make of the boat. I have not yet gone to see it yet but it does not have sails or
mast. I am hoping someone will be able to identify the make and model , so that i may start looking for parts. If anyone can help it would be appreciated.
thanks
addison.

Does it have bilge keels? Twin keels?

That would favour British.

Why this boat? Is there something special about it. There are free boats out there with masts and even sails. I'd look for one that's a well-known model that has 1000 or so sister ships, so that the used part supply is better.

Thanks for the reply's , Jackdale I don't know the difference between twin keels and bilge keels. I assumed they were bilge keels.
the only sail boat i have owned is a shark catamaran so i don't have much experience with keels at all.

By the time you get spars, sails, and rigging, it would be cheaper to buy one complete.
Maybe the guy who has the boat is going to pay the OP money to take it away. Maybe enough money to purchase all the required items to get her to sail again.

Don't weld, it will create stress points.
The tang in this link is well suited for a Solent stay.

Wichard Baby Stay Tang - Mast Fitting

To install it you make a slot in the mast, remember round corners.
Insert the two pieces, bolt together and rivet the tang with the two flanges inside the mast.
