    LIHUE, Hawaii - In a story April 9 about Hawaiian artifacts retrieved from a sunken royal yacht, The Associated Press reported erroneously when field work was completed. The project ended in 2000, not 2001 as the AP was originally told by Richard Rogers, a Hawaii shipwreck chaser who worked with scientists from the Smithsonian Institution to bring up the artifacts from the ship owned by King Kamehameha II. Paul F. Johnston, Ph.D., Curator of Maritime History at the National Museum of American History Smithsonian Institution, says the work was completed in 2000.
