Sure! It's been done. Don't know what boat you have...
But if you don't have one, add a FOIL. Install a TRAVELLER TRACK and CAR on the top of the foil. Rig a cleating system for your traveller car, either something like your mainsheet traveller (one cleat, would be difficult) or two cleats at ends of track, with turning blox to lead to fwd beam, something like that. Install a BRACKET (or bits of line to save weight) to the traveller car allowing your pole to attach to the car, yet allowing the pole to shift about some. Go sailing, adjusting the forward traveller as necessary.
Of course you will have to rethink your bridle and forestay but that shouldn't be too difficult
