I worked it out.

I have a Laser that I bought last year (super fun boat), but the aging tiller snapped while I was out on the lake. So made a new one with a hockey still (so Canadian, I know eh:?)

And my father-in-law gave me his old tiller, which is a beautiful stained wood thing of beauty that I felt my sad old Laser wasn't worth of. But necessity trumps all. I promoted his tiller to the Laser and scavanged the tiller extender from the hockey stick.

The I drilled a second hole to mount the new tiller extension
