Going forward, I would measure the distance from the center of the BB to the top of your seat, and the distance from the top of your seat post to the center of your handlebars on each of your single bikes. Also measure your standover height.
Assuming that you can both comfortably standover a tandem you're considering, and the 4 measurements above can be replicated on the canidate tandem with stems and seat posts of reasonable lengths, you should be able to make such a tandem fit, and certainly be close enough to the right fit to merit a test ride.
You could fall off a cliff and die.
You could get lost and die.
You could hit a tree and die.
OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.
