Challenge: Stability on the fishing boat
Moran has trouble stabilizing himself on his fishing boat due to the complications with his legs. Ideally, the solution will allow him to remain standing, without limiting the use of his arms. This will allow Moran to continue fishing without the constant fear of falling.
