They do that on purpose so the crabs can throw themselves into the ship's refrigerated holds. If you try to get them to board on the gangplank they'll never come. You'd know this if you lived in crabbing country like I do.


Hardly is a sailor alive
That can keep the tear from his eye
When he remembers the good ole days
When there were no crabs to save...

A million crabs in the deep blue sea
and we boil them for the industry
We dip the ship down and they jump into
our refigerated holds and
we bring 'em to you.

Hay oh, up she rises..
earlieeee in the mornin'

(Classic Crabbin Boat song, circa 1850)
