If you were going to install mast steps...

Screws should work fine if there''s enough thickness to provide a good bite - that''s the big question. I''d ask the manufacturer of your mast but I wouldn''t be surprised if they recommended rivets. Load bearing hardware on masts (goosenecks, pad eyes, etc.) that is not reinforced or through bolted is very often riveted.
