Just visited Hondacat at this boat show - if you're in the area and like looking at boats stop by and visit Frank at the Calumet Marine booth, you'll find him also on the World Cat just go to where all the Tiaras are.

Everything from 6-foot-long inflatable boats to 70-foot-long motor yachts will be on display at the 26th Annual Michigan City In-Water Boat Show.

The show will go on at Washington Park Marina today through Sunday.

It's Lake Michigan's biggest in-water boat show featuring more than 500 of the latest power and sailboats.

And while the boats will be the featured attraction, there will also be plenty of opportunity for marine enthusiasts to increase their knowledge or to have some fun.

One of the highlights will be appearance by John Greviskis, host of the television program "Ship Shape." Greviskis writes, directs produces and stars in the show that is designed to appeal to sailboat and power-boat owners. Greviskis will offer seminars and greet visitors at 5 p.m. today, 3 and 6 p.m. Friday and 1, 4 and 7 p.m. Saturday.

Back by popular demand is Twiggy the Water-Skiing Squirrel. Twiggy, who wears a life jacket and a pair of miniature water skis while being pulled in a 25-foot circular pool by a radio-controlled boat.

Twiggy will perform at 2, 4 and 7 p.m. today and Friday; noon, 2, 4 and 7 p.m. Saturday and 1, 3 and 5 p.m. Sunday.
