    Surely, we did not forget John Pierpont Morgan

    Anyone remember J.P. Morgan's yacht Corsair (USS Gloucester)?

    Surely, she should qualify.

    Eye the extra I

    You missed the extra i in Hiilani, although the name is correct in the video.

    P.S.- It's only a letter; but think of the difference the "i" can make in this example:
    taxing or taxiing = big difference; just ask someone on JetForums. ;)
