Tis a bit chilly..but.
We all know that the cold weather outside now 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. In fact, here is a pic to help you think warm thoughts.
Winter’s a Bummer, Can’t wait till Summer!
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 us all of better days ahead.
Join us at Romp’s Open House (aka “Sunshine in January” Party) next weekend January 27 & 28 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 Goody Bag full of treats.
So mark you Calendar and join us for comradery and cheer!
Cold Start to a New Year…
We know this is quite the cold snap. But with every week, we also know we are one week closer to another boating season. Sure the weather may look dreary now, but just hang in there before long we will be right back in the swing of things.
So you need a New Years Resolution?
Instead of diet fads or unused memberships to the gym, how about one that will last all summer long and you can involve the whole family. This year make a resolution you can keep….. go boating!
Finally, one last chance to remind you that though it may be cold right now, it will soon be warm again!
Stay safe, stay warm, and stay excited about the boating season to come. Cheers!
Yule love time with family…
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 16th 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!
Jolly Old Elf Visits Vermilion on his upcoming world tour.
We have about another week to go before all of us here at Romp’s will take a bit of a holiday break to spend time with friends and family, and maybe even get some eggnog as well. We always look forward to Christmas as this season of giving is a great time of year.
He’s Making a list, and checking it twice…
We also know that when Santa does fill up the sled that all of our Captain’s and Crews will have made the nice list, so the big picture is taken care of. But what does one get for the boater while the boat is waiting for summer? Well one way you can make any Captain happy is to give the gift that keeps on giving all year long.
As you already have the boat, how about a Romp’s Gift Card for the stocking?
That’s right, with one call we can take your order for most any amount, and send your favorite Captain a gift card for things like fuel, paint, supplies, wax, or beer and pop. Anything the marina sells (including Dairy Dock coins, and Putter Port passes) can be purchased with a Romp’s Gift Card.
So give a gift that lasts all season long, the gift of boating here at your homerport!
We hope to see you dockside!
Brace your Elfs…For tis the season…
We know it is still November but it hard to ignore the signs of the season all around us, one of which was Santa making an early visit to Vermilion, by boat of course.

And that’s just the beginning.. It’s also time to Branch Out.
Did you know Santa’s helpers make a return trip this weekend with Christmas Trees for sale?

From Main Street Vermilion :
“All hands on deck! The Christmas Tree Ship Lands on Saturday at 10:30AM at McGarvey’s Landing (Quaker Steak and Lube) Music, coloring contest winners, singing and stories, cookies and cocoa and the Lorain Coast Guard Cutter will escort the boat to the dock. Buy a tree or wreath off the boat or just come for the atmosphere!”
So you can see this town is really starting to look like a Hallmark Movie. Though it is no surprise to us because we know where that Jolly Ole’ Elf likes to spend his off season.
So tune in, drop by and share a little Christmas Cheer for everyone to hear at your home-port.
