Shop consignment stores, Craigslist, Ebay etc. Now that plastic boats are being scrapped there are LOTS of these sort of things out there.
It will still cost $$ but you shouldn't have to spend $KKK. Check Minneys for stanchions on E-Bay - they used to have lots of surplus new ones from (I think) Catalina going cheap. There are lots of pulpits out there for a couple of hundred $.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
