Pole cost? Free, if it is on the boat. Balance of cost? A hundred bucks for a heavy piece of plywood and some u-bolts? Not elegant, but that's basically what steered Kon-Tiki, too.
I have a carbon-fibre pole from a project that never happened and a couple scraps of marine plywood under the vberth, drill, nuts, bolts, brackets, and line are always at hand... figured I would "MacGyver" the solution when needed. IMO raw materials are more adaptable and valuable than a finished product. It might be fun to experiment with a build in calm conditions during our next cruise...
