Comments

Wreck of the KATATA near the mouth of the Klamath River on its north side. Date of wreck not known. Josephine Peters notes the dugout lashed on the KATATA is a "lagoon dugout" in contrast to the totally round-bottomed river canoes (Notebook XXXVI:133). She said the "lagoon" and "ocean" dugouts had a lower prow and higher sides and more keel than a "river" dugout (Notebook XXXVI:133).
