    has anyone made them? I need one for my capri 14. Was thinking of using a golfclub shaft.

    No reason why that wouldn’t work. I started sailing lasers with a PVC tiller extension

    Yes, it's been done before. I guess that the most difficult part is to get such an extension to fit a 'universal'.

    Which is why it hasn't been done much since the introduction of the rubber universal in the 1980s. You'd have to settle for a metallic, externally-fitted swivel fitting if you want to use a golf club.
