Stanchion base loose, repair

We're looking at a 2003 Beneteau 361 but it has a loose stanchion base. Around the base are semi-circular cracks in the gelcoat, and it definitely looks like the stanchion was struck or pushed inboard. The stanchion is located almost exactly on the beam on the port side.

Assuming that the stanchion was forced inboard enough to cause the gelcoat damage, what damage could be expected below the gelcoat? How are the stanchions mounted and bedded on these boats, and what kind of repair would be required?
