I guess that aluminium rivets would technically be fine as both the mast and rivets would be of the same material. Avoid stainless steel rivets or screws as they would react electrolytically with the mast. I would not take the risk and use anything other than monel rivets (which are almost inert). Don’t spoil the ship for a ha’pence of tar.

Good luck, John
