Tenderly Tiller Extension?

I beg your indulgence, but I'm still preparing for my first sail in the Tenderly.  I've been checking out where people tend to sit in that boat while sailing single-handed, inasmuch as I am now of an age that makes manuevering myself around the floor of a boat (where I see most people sitting) a lot more difficult than it was while I was still in my sixties.  I've noticed in the CLC gallery for the Tenderly that a few folks have more comfortably positioned themselves on one side or other on the center seat (photos 40 and 75) while they steer with a tiller extension.  Any tips on where/how to get/install one of those things - - along with any related opinions on whether it's worth it or even advisible to make this adjustment in seating location?

   Shoe I'm glad you're farther along with getting on board your Tenderly and out on the water than I am with my Waterlust canoe... but back to the topic:

Years ago when I'd built a 14' scow there was no such thing as the Internet, so I found what I needed at local boat shops like West Marine.

MUCH easier accessing information these days!

After reading your post today I Googled 'tiller extension' which turned up a few items you might find worth a look. There're even a few videos on how to install and use them, as well as how to make your own.

���I am right there with you Shoe, going to use an extension.
