I once saw a map of the seamount, and it is fairly close to the Main Island, IIRC. So will it be an island when it grows, or a peninsula? Will Hawaii some day day have three mountains, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Loihi, or will there be a new member of the chain?

Both. That said, when Loihi finally breaks above the surface, Hawaii will be probably considerably less active than it is now.
