I believe that 316 is more corrosion-resistant, but not quite as strong. I use plenty of lanocote between the rivet and the mast, should help stop any corrosion, galvanic or otherwise.

BTW, if you're dealing with the 1/4" s/s rivets, you'll need a riveter with lots of leverage, like this : Tool Aid 19800 1/4 Tool Aid 19800 1/4" Super Duty Riveter: Home Improvement
