Sailors and the tides

Sailors are stronger when the tide is coming in, and strongest at high tide, but become weak when the tide turns. They will only die of illness or old age when the tide is ebbing. Thus, if a sailor must undergo surgery, it is important that it be performed as close as possible before high tide, but not continue after it.
