What is a Lagatoi (lakatoi)?

A lagatoi or multi-hulled canoe was used to sail from Motuan villages to the Gulf region and back. The trip and subsequent trips were necessary, as traditionally during these times there was usually a drought along the Motuan coastline. The return trip brought a bountiful of sago to last throughout this drought.
