“R” Open House Weekend…Hope you stop by.

Tis a bit chilly..but.

We all know that the chilly 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 grey sky of Winter. In fact, here is a pic to help you think warm thoughts.

Winter’s a Bummer, Can’t wait till Summer!

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. Yes, we are aware of the Corona Virus, and will ask our visitors to take some precautions, such as hand washing when they arrive. But this will be a small gathering and we will be conscious of keeping things clean and tidy. In fact, we take great pride in having clean facilities even during normal operation.

So we hope you can join us at Romp’s Open House (aka “Sunshine in March” Party) this weekend March 14 & 15 from 1pm to 4pm. we will have some Hors D’oeuvres and all your favorite beverages. Plus, door prizes and even a little Gift to take home.

So mark you  Calendar and join us for comradery and cheer.

We 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!


We’re making a splash…How do you like our new look?

Did you know Romps.com started in and around 1998,(here is what it looked like then ). In the many versions since we have tried to show you not only what we have to offer, but what Lake Life is like for your family.

Whether it’s a series of great summer sunsets, or just kids having fun at the pool, we hope you have a chance to share the great outdoors with us.

Maybe we can sneak in a pic of some fish while we’re at it.

There is so much a summer on Lake Erie has to offer. We thank you for stopping by the all new Romps.com and hope that we get to see you dockside!
