Nylon or aluminum cleats on mast?

Hi All,

The mast is unstepped, and the refurbishment is coming along nicely. I had a couple of aluminum cleats that got sacrificed during removal from the mast and one from the boom. I used to have nylon cleats on my skiffs and when I went to the marine store, all they had was "Sea Dog" nylon cleats. My question is: do sailboats need aluminum cleats, or will nylon work?
