Mast seems loose at foot

I have a Seafarer 24. The mast seems to me loose at the foot. When I jiggle the stern facing side there is play. Is this normal? How is it affixed? Any ideas on how to repair it?
Thanks,
e

Re: Mast seems loose at foot

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, escape.

A mast foot (tabernackle) should be stable & fixed.
