Summer Hours and Yours…

Winter’s a bummer, Schools out for Summer…

With kids finally released from the classroom, we can get about the business of family fun here at your homeport.  Which also means our staff returns to help you at the dock. Our hours now go to our summer schedule which means we are ready to live the “Lake Life” full time.

Kids just want to have fun…

After a year of being stuck behind a desk, now is the time to get the kidos out of the house and on the water. To help Mom and Dad, our Pool will open daily starting this weekend, the Store and Gas Dock hours will also be expanded to 7pm every day. Putter Port will also open daily at 1pm and close at 10pm (note last T-time is 9:30pm). Dairy Dock opens from 11:30am to 10pm daily as well.

We hope that weather trends continues and everyone has chance to make it dockside again this weekend.

Legendary Service, from a Living Legend…

This weekend also marks a watershed moment in Romp’s history as we  wish Chuck Sooy a very happy and well deserved retirement from full time service after 53 years. For those who may be unfamiliar with Chuck’s contribution to the boating community on Lake Erie we offer this (click article for larger view):

Now we get to celebrate and enjoy the very freedom so many have fought so hard for.

Oh Bouy!..are we getting close.

The Sun is out, the temps are pleasant, and we are launching boats to make sure your at the dock and ready for the approaching Memorial Day Weekend.  One after the other you can slowly see the marina filling up in anticipation of some well deserved time to relax at the dock.

Not to apply to much “Pier” pressure.. but.

If you are one of those Captains who has still not decided on a course of action, now is the right time. Just stop  by the marine store/office and lets us steer you in the right direction. You don’t want your ship stuck on land when all the rest are making a big splash. Just a reminder, there is only one week of launch left before Memorial Weekend.

In the meantime, we will be getting the Marina, Pool, and Putter Port ready for your arrival.

Feeling Blue in a good way..

They should be visiting us soon for free Safety Inspections dockside.

Back to the Future…

Water we talking about?

Warm temps and sunny days as this week was just a taste of things to come. We were once again able to put another couple of dozen boats in the water, and the marina is really starting to take shape. So much so, that we can’t wait for another couple of weeks when the Vermilion River will start to look like this.

Vermilion River

It’s not really de-“bait”-able…

Though we tried to “Hook” you with that heading, you should know that fishing is already underway out on Lake Erie as Walleye catches already are better then last year at this time. So there’s that to look forward to as well.

Another sign of summer approaching, our neighbors across the street at the Quaker Steak and Lube have opened their dockside patio with great views of the river. Seen at the end of the parking lot both below and in the pic above.

Vermilion river too

Live, Love, Launch..

So that gets us down to launch. If your already in the water then your in good shape, if your still holding out or undecided on what you would like to do with your boat, let us help. Just stop in the office any day of the week between 9am and 5pm and we will be happy to go over the whole process for you.

We hope to see you dockside!
