Launch the boats, Launch the boats, Launch the boats….rinse, repeat.

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.

Dairy Dock is back!…Because Sprinkles are for Winners….

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.

Despite the overcast skies, it is still a sure sign of sunny days ahead!

 

We hope to see you at the Double D!..

On the Waterfront…Where work meets play!

What if we told you, you could work and play in the same exact location? In fact why spend all your time in a car driving from one location then to the other? Now you can do both because Romp’s now has office space available right on the river front.

More from the Shore….Docks making a splash at your homeport!

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!

 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day…It ain’t easy being green!

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!

This weeks forecast… Cloudy with a chance of floating docks!

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.

Now Open Saturdays….So “March” On In!

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!

Happy New Year from the whole crew at your favorite Lake Erie marina at Romp’s!

This Christmas give your captain a gift that will really float his boat!

We know what your thinking, the boats are out and cold weather is here to stay. To that we say there is no better time then to start planning next summer! What if you could give the someone you love the gift of the great outdoors, of family activity and an escape from the stresses of life.

You can! Instead of buying a gift that your captain or crew member will open and be done with, or worse yet have to return, get them a Romp’s Gift Card! It works similar to a pre-paid visa in that you get a credit card sized gift card that you can use for the following:

  • * Dockage and Winter Storage
  • * Gas and pump-out services
  • * Beer, Pop, Ice, Snacks, and Romper Room Food!
  • * Putter Port Passes (purchased through our store with no extra fees)
  • * Dairy Dock Ice Cream Tokens (purchased through our store with no extra fees)
  • * Service on your boat including launch, pull-out, tune-ups, oil changes, even electronics rigging.
  • * Guest passes for the pool.
  • * Safety Gear, flares, life jackets etc.
  • * Boating cleaners and supplies.
  • * Most anything we sell!*

With no extra fees! That’s right a $25 gift card costs $25, a $50 gift card $50, and so on. You name the amount, we load the card, add a boat and some water, mix in some warm weather and stir; wa-laa! Smiles ensue! The card holder can use all of the amount at once or a little at a time.

So this Christmas give the gift that will continue to put a smile on your captains face all year long. The gift of boating.

(*Some restrictions apply, all purchases have to be made at Romp’s marine store/office, please contact Romp’s for more details. Romp’s Gift Cards are good only at Romp’s Water Port, Inc.)
