Was a pretty good week dockside at your homeport, we launched some boats, then launched some more, then…well…launched a couple more; so we really are making a splash at your family fun marina.
Some Captains and Crew have even taken to the lake in search of Walleye before the water gets too warm and the big eyes go deep. Though this time of year everyone has to use caution out on Lake Erie when she’s only in the high 40’s lower 50’s. Not quite bathing suit weather just yet.
We encourage our dockers to check their launch orders over and get those turned in so we can get you on the schedule. Also, those already in should go through their safety gear and make sure everything is in order prior to heading out.
Then for those still looking for a nice place to drop anchor, stop by Romp’s Lake Erie Marina and let us show you what we have to offer. (such as here, here and here
It won’t be long before Summer will be right around the corner and you wouldn’t want to miss the boat!
Also, for best results…just add water!.. We know it’s kinda campy, but we are pleased that despite a week of up and down weather we were able to make quite a splash at your home-port with boat after boat headed toward the docks.
With every boat we launch the marina starts to look a little more like summer. In fact we’ve even taken a spin out on the Lake today and though it looks like occasional rain, it was nice to get that “Erie” feeling being back on the water again.
So if your still debating what needs done to get your boat ready, stop by and let us help you get your launch order filled out so you can be the next vessel sitting at the dock in ship-shape, ready to go.
We will be open 9-5 both Saturday and Sunday and hope to see you dockside.
There’s a chance of Oreo Flurrys in the forecast for today! Dairy Dock returns as Vermilion’s official kick off to spring opens today at 11:30am. Ice Cream aficionados can finally get out and about today for their favorite Cones, Shakes and Flurrys as we look forward to the Summer Season ahead.

Also for those interested in information on docking this summer, we are now open Saturday AND Sunday 10-3 at your Family Fun Marina….We hope to see you dockside!
What nice weather we have had this week. Taking advantage of a little sunshine and some mild temps we were able to get started putting the docks in, as we inch closer toward launch.
Of course this is just the very beginning, but compared to last year where we were waiting for ice to melt, we are feeling good about getting an early start to spring.
Another sign of spring arrives very soon for Romp’s Captain’s and their crews as Launch Orders are coming soon to a mailbox near you. So you will have plenty of time to think over your game plan for splashdown.
Finally, for those of you looking for a place for your boat to call home. We are now Open Saturdays from 10-3 stop by and let us show you what we have to offer!
Hope to see you dockside!
We want to wish all of our captains and crews a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Here’s hoping the road does indeed rise up to meet you, yet the lake lays down before you. Here at your home-port we are getting more and more excited to start the boating season. So chase your rainbows, and soon you can chase the Sun.
Despite cool temps and gray weather folks will be out in big numbers, so be please be careful when you celebrate. And for those who are looking for a place to drop anchor, we are open Saturday from 10-3 and we will have coffee ready for the day after. See you dockside!
Sure that may sound silly, but we get pretty excited here at your home-port when we hear that splashing sound of docks going back in the water.
And while the photo above will not win any awards for color or photography in general, it sure looks great to us because it signifies the beginning to what we look forward to the most…. The boating season.
Of course we hope you are now making plans to do some splashing of your own this coming summer, and we have just place for you anchor those family plans.
So stop by and see all that we have to offer your crew this boating season.
We are now Open Saturday’s from 10-3 to serve you better….We hope to see you dockside here at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina.
First some news we are proud to share; this past week we were awarded the Ohio Clean Marina designation for the 10th year in a row. Why is this important? Well it shows you our voluntary commitment to preserving the environment so everyone can enjoy clean water for boating and fishing activities.
That said, with each passing day we are also inching closer and closer to seasonable temps, and with it plans for a spring launch. Right now we are working on launch orders so we can get them in the mail in hopes that when the thermometer goes up, the docks can go in. While it may seem early yet to talk of launching boats, these things have a way of sneaking up on the unprepared.
After all, it won’t be long and the river will look like this again!
So if your out and about and you want to talk spring and launch, or if your new to boating and your looking for a place to call your home-port stop in and see why Romp’s is Lake Erie’s Family Fun Marina.
We’ll have the coffee on for you!….We hope to see you dockside.
Open 10am to 3pm Saturday!
Sure it may not last, but we will take these mild temps in the 60’s as a pre-cursor to what could be a very nice Spring and Summer ahead. And it won’t be that long before this pic below is next on the agenda –\/
In fact the warm weather has some of our Dairy Dock fans sending us reminders that there’s some sweet tooth work to be done as they look forward to the Ice Cream stand opening.
Here is a pic sent to us yesterday making a “Cone”-vincing argument as to when we should open.
So hang in there, Spring is just around the corner….soon it will look like this at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina.
