According to Raine, the Atlantic coastline is littered with the wrecks of small boats like this one. In the early days of the Chimeran invasion, tens of thousands of refugees from Europe stormed the coastline attempting to find a safe passage across the channel. Most of them died... or worse. In the refugees wake came the Cloven. The Maquis are not sure why. To stop the refugee's fleeing? To steal the boats for themselves? We know at least some of the Cloven made it to England, though we'd assumed they'd followed the Burrowers under the channel. The wrecked boats showed the Cloven had other motives. Doesn't seem like much of a mystery; the laws of nature adjusting to the new food chain. Like bears, the Cloven go down to feed at the water because that's where all of the fish are.
