The Old Man and the Sea

Around page 48, the Marlin begins to circle Santiago’s skiff. Santiago is not in very good physical shape. What details from the story draw this picture of a fatigued Santiago?

Santiago's hands are cut up and cramping, especially his left hand. THey are so cut that they resemble raw meat. His back is terribly sore. He is physically and mentally exhausted.
