Yes, I replaced 6 rivets in less than 10 minutes. Both ends are now tightened up, after becoming quite loose. The forces are spinnaker pole ends are shearing forces, so a rivet is perfectly well-suited to the task.

The pole itself is usually in compression, not shear. The way the pole is fitted to the ends, there should be little load on rivets themselves.
