Some News to Gooble Up…Wishing you a great Thanksgiving!

Turkey Day arrives just in time for family and fun.

We want to take a minute to thank all of our Captains and Crew for a great boating season. With Thanksgiving week arriving, we hope you get a chance to enjoy your time with family and friends. We also hope that any travels you may have are safe and not too much of a hassle.

Below is the first Romp’s Thanksgiving (imagined)

 

Turkey Day

We kid of course, but one of things we do need to share with you is the Marina’s hours will be a little different this week.

Romp’s will be closed Weds through Sunday to celebrate Thanksgiving.

However, if an urgent situation arises and you need assistance just call us and leave a message or email us and we will get back to you. We are in and out of the marina several times a day even when on break.

We will be back at it on Monday, Nov 28th.

Boats migrate to shore..Winter Hours Edition

That’s a wrap, Gas Docks now closed weekends.

For everything there is a season, and as we end October and enter November with the boats on shore at your home-port it officially closes the book  on the boating calendar for 2022. We will be pulling the last boars and then some docks next as we have to finish in the coming weeks, but wanted you to know “R” hours are changing with the seasons.

So, with the sun shining, and the boats prepped on land for their long winter naps, we have some changes to update you on dockside.

With the Gas Docks now closed weekends we would like to thank everyone who supported us this year and can’t wait to get right back on the water in 2023, your business is very much appreciated.

“R’ hours and yours

Next up, our Store/Office hours will revert back to the winter schedule which is:

Monday – Tuesday -Thursday – Friday 10am to 3pm.

The Service Dept is open weekdays from 8 am to 5pm. If you need assistance or would like to pay a bill just give us a call, we can take credit cards right over the phone.

In the meantime…Stay Safe…Stay Happy!

Back to School… “R” hours and yours..

Our Student employees have class!

Hey all, we have had a great summer here at your homeport. That said, the “back to school” time of year has arrived and with it the departure of some of our staff as they head back to the classroom.

So the Dairy Dock hours are now 11am to 9pm daily.

Following that, our Putter Port Hours are 10am to 9pm Saturday and Sunday, we will be closed weekdays due to the start of school. We do wish our staff a very successful school year!

Finally Putter Port’s last day will be Labor Day Monday, and yes we are open that day as well.

We appreciate your understanding and hope to see you dockside!

 

 

The daily grind is a good thing

From the “Stitch in Time” dept…

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.

"R" docks

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!
