Fitting a ski pole

Hi. I am wanting to fit a ski pole. Ideally, I plan on drilling through the deck directly behind the hinged seat and sliding the pole down into a socket mounted across the stringers in the hull. The area is full width of deck x around 150mm. The distance form the deck to the foot plate is only 280mm and the length of pole to the ski rope attachment point is around 680mm.
The question is - Do you think glassing in a piece of plywood would give sufficient strength to the deck to take the strain from leverage when in use?
Any advice please?
