Mounting a goose neck to a mast

A guy from a local machine shop came out to look at my mast to fabricate a bracket we can use to mount the goose neck on it. He wants to use about 10 screws and a backing plate.

On my 30 foot boat, that just seems like massive over kill. Could this be done maybe with 6 screws, 3 on each side, and no backing plate? Or maybe pop rivits?
