I just purchased a Ronstan urethane U-joint for my tiller extension. However, my current extension is ~24 inches and I sometimes clip it to the tiller when running. Now with the new urethan U-joint I don't have to worry about clipping it, since it will just suspend itself. I would like to get some opinions from those of you who single hand but have the same kind of rubber U-joint. What length of the extensions do you use? pros/cons? I figure if I need to lengthen the extension, now is the time. Personally, 24 inches seems a bit short. I sit just slightly behind the barney post and sometimes when I get a strong puff and I am hiking out over the rail I sometimes think a longer extension would be better...on the other hand a longer one just get in the way when tacking/gybing. Love to hear some opinions.
