There is a simpler explanation for how they reached the islands, says Paul Pettitt of the University of Sheffield, UK: maybe they just swam there.
A new low for cack brained academics!

This man has obviously never swum in the ocean-most people couldn't manage 4 kilometres let alone 40.

I know I'm an ocean swimmer-heavy currents await the unwary......

ocean swimmer -- northwest or east -- i (from oregon) spent some few seconds over my life jumping into Puget Sound for a quick swim --- the "key" words here are --- 1) quick and 2) seconds

obvisously -- some people (like the article referenced) have never had the opportunity of being in (like in the water) Puget Sound -- for those who are swimmers -- swim on -- me -- i just watch the "coast guard" show --- that's the closest in get anymore ---
