forestay extension

Has anyone every heard of a stud extender? I envision a stud with 3/8 female thread on one end and 3/8 male on the other. I need about 2" more on my forestay. This would screw over the forestay stud, perhaps with a lock washer and nut to hold it tight. Depending on how long the "extender" was, it would lengthen my forestay.

Does anyone know if such an animal exists?

Althernatively, is there such a thing as a extra long turnbuckle body?
