Simply because the main life was on shore, and swimming etc. was only
a frequent but temporary activity. Exactly that is when a fur is messy
and awkward.

I would think the AA lifestyle fairly like the life on the Pacific
islands people before Europeans arrived, but taking out cultural and
religious activities.

I would select that too, if I had to live my life complety alone, with
a free choice of environments on earth, simply because it seems the
laziest way of staying alive.
