You should use something like Lanocote on the threads of the stainless steel screws that are penetrating the aluminum mast. Unless you have major structural issues in the blistered areas, I'd sand the hell out of it and call it good. Coat the mast with some decent paint and the pitted areas will be virtually invisible. It's not like this paint job is going to last forever.
