Enough evidence that Chinese vessels visited the West Coast, either on purpose or driven there by storms and prevailing winds.

On a pre pandemic trop to New Zealand at a Māori museum they showed how they would navigate the ocean in those canoes island hoping, using the horizon, birds etc. All sort of ways to navigate and find what they were looking for. Interesting stuff.Makes you wonder about the original inhabitants of Easter Island. At least a 3500km canoe trip hitting a proverbial spec in the middle of the ocean.
