Not as difficult as you might think. I did this using an armourtek mount and ball and used one of Steve Winstone's armoured mg34's. As it's not designed to be mounted on fibreglass it does need a bit of fitting.

The ball mount stands off too far as supplied so I shaved some off to get it to sit better. This in turn means that the ball a way of retaining it in the mount. I can't remember exactly what I did but I used something like a grinding ball to dome out the fibreglass. Then just bolted it all up.

On the back of the ball I made an L bracket which is attached to a servo and just gives right and left movement.
