The Catharina (168 GRT) was built on the shipyard of D.W.Kremer
in Elmshorn for Thies Breckwoldt and Heinrich Dreyer in 1865.
It was flying the flag "Z 102" or signal "LDVK".
The captains Thies Breckwoldt, Heinrich Dreyer, Johs. Kröger
and Johs. Bohn were in command. On the 2nd of November 1878
the Catharina left Antwerp and was bound for Rio Grande do Sul.
It was Johs. Bohns first and only voyage on the Catharina. It
is believed that the vessel sank in stormy seas between the
8th and 11th of November, some debris was washed ashore on the
French coast near Ploumanache. Six members of the crew died
