Mast Step Plate

Just a quick question..

How should a mast step plate be secured to the deck?? Mine was secured with 4 screws that seemed extremely inadequate. Should they be through bolted? I can tell that there were repairs done to that area at some point (older boat) and a very large chance that whomever did the repairs did not re-secure the plate correctly.

P.S. I apologize if I'm using the wrong terminology for the plate I'm referring to. It is that plate that the mast slides down over. Not the SS plate that can be using to attach blocks to.

Thanks a ton!

My complete refit is taking completely too long!
