Renee Wallace Silberstein of the city Parks and Recreation Department held up donated leis yesterday at Honolulu Hale for today's attempt at the world's longest lei for the "Guinness Book of World Records." Today is the 81st annual celebration of May Day, and the city wants to create a lei in Kapiolani Park that is at least a mile long. More lei donations will be accepted today at the park from 7 to 8:30 a.m.
SHIP'S TINY HELPERS
COURTESY OF BAE SYSTEMS HAWAII SHIPYARDS
Norwegian Cruise Lines' Pride of America made shipyard workers look like Lilliputians yesterday in Dry Dock No. 4 at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The cruise ship entered the Navy facility Saturday for two weeks of repair and maintenance work. The 921-foot-long, 90,000-ton ship is the largest private vessel ever to be dry-docked at Pearl Harbor, the only Hawaii facility able to handle the aircraft-carrier-size behemoth. The bulbous protrusion at the lower part of the bow is designed to alter the shape of the bow wave to reduce drag underway.
