No matter how small the distance is to something if you only go half way you won't get there, right?  Say you are 10 ft from your goal and you go half way, now you are 5 ft away.  Now you go half way to your goal and you are only 2.5 ft away.  You never will reach your goal because no matter what the distance is you only go half way there, never all the way.

It's possible I'm missing something obvious here, but Archimedes Principle is about buoyancy yet you seem to be explaining Zeno's Paradox

That’s Zeno’s paradox.

Archimedes principle is about a solid displacing fluid, and feeling a buoyant force equal to the weight of the displaced fluid.
