And a hoppin’ good Spring!
Here’s wishing all of our Captain’s and Crew a very Egg-citing easter weekend. We hope you enjoy your time with family and friends. Our office/store will be open Saturday for every bunny looking to find a dock for the summer, so we hope you Hop on in!
Put a little Spring in your step!
Of course launch orders have been sent out and we hope you have received yours. Please take time to review your service needs and let us know if we can help you fill out the order or answer any questions you may have.
Docks are in so those coming by water can arrive anytime. Please note for current dock holders: Romp’s does not provide steps or corner platforms, if your dock has items left on the dock from previous owners, or you feel items may be an obstacle and need removed, just let us know. For those folks attaching items, please contact us for guidelines so you do not damage your dock (drilling/fastening into the steel is prohibited).
We are always happy to help out.
Double D countdown begins..
For Dairy Dock fans the beginning April means it’s that time of year. We have tentatively slated April 12th for Opening Day. Now this could change due to weather or unforeseen circumstances, so check back here for updates.
Have an Egg-ceptional Easter Weekend from your friends at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina!
Docks start their natural migration back to water…
The sun is out, albeit it is a bit cool, yet we have had a great week here at your home-port putting the docks in as we take another step closer to Launch Season.
We’re making a splash…
With every passing day the marina starts to look like the boating season is just around the corner. Note that even though it may take awhile before we can turn dockside water on due to freezing temps, dockside electric is on.
Dock boxes will start to be delivered in the next week. Boaters should also start to receive their launch orders as they go out today.
The gas docks are in, but the gas pumps have not been hooked up yet, so stay tuned for updates as we work toward getting things back in order.
From the “You can never be too prepared” Dept….
Ohio State Watercraft will be offering a FREE one-day Ohio Boating Education Course this Saturday, March 24, from 9am to 5pm. There are multiple courses all over the state. Preregistration is required visit http://bit.ly/2FeiFBD for details.
Don’t worry about the light coating of white stuff on the lawn, we are in the home stretch as far as Winter is concerned with the official start to Spring slated for 20 March 2018. You know what that means; very soon docks will start to make a splash at your home-port. (last year in March pictured below)
Live, Love, Launch..
Once the docks go in, the Launch Orders will start arriving at a mailbox near you. As the official start to the Launch season is April 1st (weather permitting), though we always recommend you hold off till the later part of April or into May as Mother Nature can still throw us some curve-balls temperature wise.
What can you do in the meantime?
Think warm thoughts!.. That and make sure you have a dock secured for your boat if you haven’t already. We are now Open Saturdays from 10am to 3pm and have a good selection to choose from. Also, now would be a good time to check on things like your boat registration as those expire on March 1st, best to get your paperwork done now so your boat is ready for the open seas. Contact us if you have any questions or need assistance.
The Sun will soon rise on a new boating season…
And we can’t wait, hope to see you dockside at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina!
“R” hours and yours….
With the coming of March within days of today, we are changing hours here at your home-port. Starting March 3rd we will be open in the marine store Saturdays from 10-3, to serve you better.
Looking to make a splash?
Now that February has officially drawn to a close we are hoping you have a chance get out of the house and stop by and see what we have to offer. We would like to show you around and talk boating to see where you boat would like spend the summer. Launch is drawing closer by the day.
Plus the coffee is on us…
For up to date business hours visit “R” Hours Page…..We hope to see you dockside!
We’re already hooked on the idea of a great walleye season..
With the temps finally headed in the right direction and with every passing day we cannot think about anything but the one that got away (AND the one’s that didn’t). It’s time to talk fishing.
Reel good news….
Last year’s boating season allowed us to see some of the largest Walleye catches in a decade. The thing that was even more exciting to anglers is the amount of Walleye caught that were just too young to keep and had to be tossed back. Meaning, this season could shape up to be one for the record books as those fish mature.
Tarter Sauce sales expected to rise…
Even though it is only February, you can already feel the anticipation when our fisherman stop in to renew their docks. It is like they kept track of the number of toss-backs in those hot-spots and are chomping at the bit to get back out there.
Now these pics are what we call the greatest hits of 2017 (that we had a chance to view).
Yet most every weekend at our gas docks you can see that the theme here is one of excitement for anglers in the coming season. So grab your favorite tackle box and pole and mark those calendars, Spring is just around the corner.
Believe us, it’s not just “Fishfull Thinking”… Time to get hooked!
