As a consequence, MacGyver-ing is a highly appreciated skill in the marine world, whether or not it is recognized aloud. The ability to fix something in impromptu fashion using the materials at hand is a trait that has saved many mariners.
With that in mind, let me introduce you to my 5 year old granddaughter, Eliza.
Eliza noticed that one of the Christmas decorations in her home, an electric candle, was "broken". So, she studied on it, and picking it up discovered that when held in her hand, the light came on! (It turns out there is a photocell concealed in the body of the candle that turns it off in daylight.)
So, she fixed it, in a way that is imminently logical, using materials at hand... a toilet paper tube:
|Broken... And Fixed|
This girl clearly has a boat of her own in her future!
