If you have the mast already you can make your own set of wood boards fairly easily and cheap.  Plenty of plans on the internet, just gotta do a quick search.  I believe cedar is what we used building ours around 10 years ago and they still work fine.

Turning with the big boards out has to be a slow, wide turn, or you end up with the problems you describe.  I've used the old "Jolly Releases" for years with no problems, but they seem to have gone out of business. I changed over to the Scotty mini releases and they seem to be no problem if they end up in the water for a bit.
