adjustable tarp pole

I'm looking for an adjustable tarp pole for a multiday kayaking trip. It seems like most stuff only collapses down to about 4 feet. That would be a bit big for my kayak.

Any suggestions?

I have always used a hiking pole as a great adjustable tarp pole...you can't stand up under it, but the handle prevents poking a hole and the tip doubles as its stake.

Back in my dirtbag climber days, we were too cheap to buy a tent and would always use a tarp instead. A pair of hiking poles go a long ways in making the classic "pup" tent, even when you have nothing to attach the tarp to. Most models collapse down to less than 24" and should fit nicely in your boat.
