Paul Allen at Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii

On a snorkeling trip at the Big Island Friday we saw a huge yacht with a helecopter taking off from it. I wondered if it were Octopus, Paul Allen's yacht that was the largest private yacht in the world when built. I was right. It's 417 feet long, has a full-time crew of 60, 7 boats - and a submarine!

This was just off Kealakekua Bay, where Captain Cook was killed. A beautiful spot.

I found a site where the locals are posting photos - and complaints - at Flickr

Yeah the yaught is huge!!! One of my friends recently worked with him as a dive guide when he was here in the Maldives. He also has a deep sea unmanned submersible which he used everynight outside the Atolls to explore. Really a fantastic Yaught
