mast steping on a fiberglass jollyboat

I am looking for information on how to step the mast on a fiberglass boat that I was told is a Jollyboat.  The mast is aluminum and has a UK manufacturer.  Both hull and upper decks are molded fiberglass.  The foredeck has a “cutout” slot for the mast.  The sole of the boat has a small “slot” for the base of the mast which has a “screw with a phenolic disk”, I presume for tensioning the mast & stays.  Any advice is welcome; what should the mast base look like and the reciever?
