So, these are the same cats detailed in previous questions. Intelligence is equivalent to 'human in cat bodies', they have mildly opposable thumbs, they can be bipedal temporarily (Think like bears or rabbits), and have a technology level summed up by lacking tools for the most part, but having basic transportation, vague domestication, some mild agriculture, and navigation good enough to traverse to entirely different continents. So, a bit above primitive in some places.
I decided that due to them not being able to create things such as compasses, they'd use the stars and sun to navigate, although I am not positive if they would be able to see stars, or at least well enough to use them for navigation. To cross oceans, they'd rely on ocean currents, due to lacking sails, and simply drift across the world. They also have their own maps, so I assume someone would have made a map of ocean currents after enough trial and error as well as collaboration with other explorers.
But, would this actually work? The boats can only hold one cat and some supplies, maybe two if the cats are small and/or lightweight. They are essentially canoes. I also didn't plan on them using oars, but if that is required, I'd be fine with having them use them. And, anything along the lines of 'they can't since they'd get tired' or 'they can't without oars' should be excused. I can easily change their energy limits since it isn't vital to the story, and I have explicitly stated that I would be fine with letting them use them.
