That may be a part of it - they definitely did develop their own community of pilot fish etc.

The logs were freshly cut. Ants were a problem for a while.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
