"Without those currents the icebergs breaking out of the sea ice wouldn't have gotten much momentum ~ making travel in a small boat relatively safe even in mid-ocean. I would imagine this would even have a serious impact on hurricanes and that would have extended the sailing time into the warmer months giving the Sa'ami plenty of time to reach America."
They could have walked across the ice.

No doubt, but they'd been dragging stuff with them, and they necessarily crossed with females.
I tend to agree with the thesis presented on TV that they took their small boat with them if only to provide shelter against the wind.
