Wow, you mean the pylon that is mounted to the stringers?

You're boat is pretty new, I would think the dealer should get you a new one no charge. You're lucky no one was injured.

why? Wouldn't this be a issue regarding how the user installed the pole?

Your local dealer or any Mastercraft dealer can get you a replacement. For future reference pull up on the pylon before use to make sure that you have rotated it in to the lock position.

My mistake Eric, I didn't know MC has a retractable pylon (do they?)
Even so, isn't there a stop to keep the pylon from coming all the way out?

On some of the new boats MasterCraft has a completely removable pylon.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but wouldn't the other end of the rope be tied to it?

Probably just put the loop over it rather than going the slip-knot route.
