Sun sets on a beautiful summer…. Time to think about fall services.

We know it’s hard to think about your winterization plans when it has been mid-80’s and sunny everyday this week,but why not take a minute and plan for a hassle free pull-out now and avoid any last minute problems. Because the sun is slowly setting on a great summer here at your home-port.

So the first thing we want to do is remind you that if you have not done so already, now is the time to turn in your oil change order so we can get those done prior to the pull-out season starting (which is just another week away). Please call us or email us if you need help. We can get you scheduled right over the phone.

With the oil change completed all you have left to do is check off what services you require on your pull-out order and turn it in with the week you would like to be pulled circled and sit back, relax and let us do the rest.

We are here to help, stop by and let us assist you in filling out your pull-out order or answer any questions you may have. We aim to make your fall services a hassle free experience!

We hope to see you dockside:

Time to “Fall” into your home-port!

It’s been a couple weeks now since Labor Day, and we have to admit the weatherman has been very cooperative. Even though the temps are supposed to Fall along with some leaves, the Sun has shown most every day and we are thankful for it.

imag1921-b

So while there certainly will be more chances to get out on the water before you have to Pull-Out, now is the time to get prepared. Romp’s captain’s should be getting Pull-Out packets in the mail, and we are here to help you with the whole “Get ready for winter” process. Stop in and see us if you have any questions about what to do to get your ship in shape before the leaves fall.

Let us make your fall as hassle free as possible and most of all we hope to see you dockside!

Please note, our new “Fall Hours” are 9am to 5pm, daily.

Please note, that For those needing parts or Service Department assistance our service staff will be off on Monday in addition to the weekend as they get to spend some much deserved time with family.

But fear not, the rest of our staff will be here serving you on the 4th and throughout the weekend as we celebrate America’s Birthday. So come out and relax and enjoy time with your family at your home-port this weekend!
