Our first order of business is to thank all of our Captain’s and Crew for visiting with us this weekend, we had a great time and can’t wait to “SEA” you all soon! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
A very “CONE-vincing” start to the year!
It was also a treat that for the Second time in Marina history we fired up a Dairy Dock machine and served Ice Cream in the winter. That could be a neat tradition, because sprinkles are indeed for winners!
So next up is the wait for spring, it cannot come soon enough and when it does we hope to see you dockside!
We all know that the cold weather just makes us appreciate the warm that follows. Before you know it, we will start to think about putting boats in and hopefully forget all this single digit frigidness of the past week. That said, we are Snow Happy to see you, so.
There’s Snow Place Like Home!
So what can we do about this in the meantime? How about a little get together for all of our Captain’s and Crew to reassure and remind us all of better days ahead.
Join us at Romp’s Open House (aka “It’s the Snow Life” Party) this weekend January 26 & 27 from 11am to 2pm. We will be serving Hot Dogs, & Ice Cream Sundaes (yes, Dairy Dock Ice Cream in the winter as we will have a machine up and running) and all your favorite beverages. Plus, door prizes every half hour and even a little gift full of treats.
So mark you Calendar because its a Snow Day (for Boaters)!
Also, new Captains and Crews looking for a place to drop anchor next summer, please feel free to stop by, we would like to show you all we have to offer. We hope to see you dockside!
Everyone here at your homeport wishes you a great 2019, and can’t wait to get the season started. Year after year folks start a new year’s resolution right about this time. but what if we told you we have a healthy one that the whole family can enjoy!
Resolve to go boating!
That’s right, forget the fad diets and signing up for a year at the gym when you will only go a time or two. This time resolve to get the whole family into the great outdoors, and really take advantage of all the things our area has to offer on the water.
Or just keep it reel!
Or maybe just resolve to spend some quiet time away from all those electronic gadgets. Now is the time to plan, and to stop wishing, start thinking fishing! Just you and some peace and quiet out on Mother Erie.
Rock the Dock…
You don’t even have to leave the marina to enjoy some time in the sun! You can make a splash with friends and family this year!
New Year, New You…
So resolve just to relax, and enjoy what is already here, here’s hoping we see you dockside!
It’s that time of year again, chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost etc, and we are very much looking forward, as we do every year, to spending some of that Christmas time with our family and friends.
But before we break out the eggnog, we better get you up to speed on what that means.
Starting Saturday Dec 15th we will be closed and will be taking a couple of weeks off, we will return on January 2nd.
We will still be in and out of the marina daily, so if you need us just email or call and leave a message and we will get back to your promptly.
We hope you get Gold, Frankincense, and so very much Myrrh!
Other then that we are ready to make Merry and hope that you are too. We wish all of our Captain’s and Crew the very best this Christmas, and so many, many good things to come in the New Year!
So stay warm, stay safe and enjoy your time with family, we will see you next year!
So the short days of Winter have started to show up along with some chilly temps at your home-port. Among the top questions we get this time of year is “What do you do in the winter, go to Florida?“.
Repair, Repaint, or Replace..
Florida? well, not exactly, in fact we are busy grinding, welding and painting docks, repairing boats and upgrading the marina in various ways from lighting to equipment repairs, and so much more.
You can see we really “Scrape” by…
Every year we take pride in getting the Marina ready for the next great boating season. As well as getting some of our captains in ship shape for the voyages ahead. Though we do take some time off at Thanksgiving and Christmas, the rest of the time we are right here at your home-port prepping for the days to come.
There’s a reason we’re thinking of next season…
So we hope this answers the question of what a marina does in the off-season. The answer is look forward to the ON season (as in ON THE WATER) . Thanks for stopping by!
