It might also be worth taking the screws out of the mast fittings, and coating them with anhydrous lanolin or Lanocote, and putting them back. This will help to help prevent galvanic corrosion from occurring.
If you find any areas with a lot of white powdery material..that is probably someplace that you've got a galvanic corrosion problem, and it should be cleaned and investigated further.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
