Boats migrate to their winter resting place at your homeport…

Now is the time to make sure your ready, and we can help.

Sure it looks like another mid-70 degree weekends on tap, and we appreciate an Indian Summer as much as the next guy, but we also know that the temps soon fall after the leaves do. Better to be prepared for the inevitable.

We appreciate your understanding and sure hope to see you dockside!

Pull the boats, Pull the boats, Pull the boats…Your weekend update.

Now is the best time to get your pull-out planned before the temps fall with the leaves…

We know that the boating season ends way to soon for some folks. Even with the pleasant temps we have had this past several weeks, we would be remiss if we didn’t remind our Captains and Crew that what soon follows can be some pretty frosty temps.

We have been busy pulling and prepping boats this week in anticipation of the cooler days ahead, and hope you have had a chance to review your needs and have charted your course to shore.

The cradles are out and ready for your boats long winter nap.

Now, if you have not made plans, please don’t delay. Contact us so we can help you plan your Winter Storage needs. There’s only two weeks left, best to get on the schedule now so you can relax and enjoy a hassle free pull-out knowing you have got all the bases covered.

We don’t want you to get left out in the cold!

It’s Autumn-matic at your Homeport!

We “fall” for it every time (of year).

The leaves have started to change color as the official start to fall arrives at your homeport. Of course the forecast for the weekend is Autumn like with temps in the high 70’s to low 80’s and some showers mixed in; so there’s chances to load the freezer with perch before the sunsets on another boating season.

Now is also a great time to plan your boat’s winter storage needs and we are here to help. You can stop in and let us help get your pull-out in order by answering any questions or concerns you may have.

We also have supplies in stock for the do-it-yourself captain.  Either way, we hope to see you dockside at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina!

On to October…Your weekend Update!

Cool is the rule this weekend at your homeport…

Well, we certainly cannot complain about the weather for the last week or so. Last weekend’s picture perfect lake conditions were followed by even more of the same during the week. Almost postcard perfection at your homeport.

Yet with the changing of the leaves it is a signal to all boat owners that the end of September is here and next up is October, so now is the time for some fall planning.

If you haven’t done so already, let us help you go through your pull-out order and answer any questions you may have. This next week will be the last for Oil Change orders so please get those turned in this weekend if needed.

Other then that, “R” store hours will be 9am to 5pm both days this weekend for those still chasing perch and walleye. We hope to see you dockside.
