Lifted gently off the beach by dawn’s small tide, the raft bumped against the legs of her handlers straining at each corner. In later years, no spaceship launched from Cape Canaveral would be attended as avidly as this first attempt by Homo sapiens to reach a distant shore.

 

They knew what they were doing. Modern humans had fished for millennia from small rafts bobbing on South African lakes. As unglimpsed northern icefields continued to recede over the past 10,000 years, logs laboriously recovered from rainforests surging beneath a newly trending warm, wet southern climate substituted for the absence of bamboo. As a result, this 60-hands-long oceangoing prototype weighed as much as a baby elephant. When completed, the small band rallied to move the big raft over continually-replaced log rollers down to the low tide mark. Would Shearwater skim the sea like her namesake, or… ?
