Tiller Question

Hi,
I purchased a Watkins 25 in October and only was able to use it once before taking it out of the water. I hated the tiller... seemed way too long and also was a bit too thick to be comfortable in my hand. I want to replace it but when I found a compay to make one for me they sent me about 7 designs to choose from. Does anyone know if there is a certain formula or things to keep in mind when designing a tiller for a boat? Will making it a bit shorter and thinner at the end have a great impact? Anyone know where about you should put the curves? Thanks Alot for the help!
Susan
