Stepping the mast on an old FJ

I got a 1965 FJ to kick around on. Have taken it out a few times. Sails are a bit blown, but what fun! However, it is a PITA to get the mast up. The older FJs just have a hole in the deck to stick the mast into. So, the best I can figure, the only way to get it up is to jam the base of the mast against the hole, and walk the mast up until it falls in. Is difficult/dangerous with two people, and worse singlehanded. Any ideas to make this smoother?
