Waiting on the weekend….

It is that time of year, the kidos are headed back to the bus stop and the weather is giving us a brief mid-week cool down before heading back into the mid-eighties for the weekend. So hang in there, another day on the Lake is right around the corner.

IMG_1742

We all know with slight cool downs in the weather, that usually is a sign that the much beloved Perch Season is not far off. In fact we have some fisherman who fly in just for he occasion.

Yacht-a,Yacht-a,Yacht-a…our kind of boat talk.

It’s been a heck of a run weather wise since the 4th of July weekend. Here’s hoping you and your crew have had a chance to get out on the Lake and enjoy your fun in the sun. Now, this is going to sound a little familiar but the forecast is once again looking like a Lake with 1ft or less this weekend.

IMG_20150819_112947_005

What that means for our Captains and crews is another chance to get out in the fresh air before the cooler days start coming our way, and the kidos head back to the confines of brick buildings.

The choice looks pretty clear. So seas the day, as we hope to see you at your home-port!

According to the weather experts every day from here through the weekend will be warmer and with calmer seas then the one before it. Sure there’s a chance of a pop-up shower, but by Sunday your looking at a forecast of a glass lake.

So if you’ve been waiting for that perfect weekend to make some wake, your time may have arrived. So get the crew ready and get out in the great outdoors and in the Sun before the kidos get stuck in brick buildings all winter.

Happy Birthday USA!..How Boating Gave Birth to a Nation.

Thankfully, everyone gets a nice end of the week break to spend time with family and friends as we celebrate our country’s birth, so we thought we would remind all how boating played a key role in shaping this nation.

columbus-landing-new-world

In fact, boats and boating are part of the American fabric. It took some sturdy wood for Columbus to land in the new world and get credit for discovering our continent.

washington-delaware-l

Even our founding fathers got in the act using rowboats to move an army and catch the British off guard, helping give birth to our Democracy. Of course this is but one example of America’s illustrious nautical history.

battle_of_lake_erie_full_size

Why just a couple of years ago we were celebrating the Bicentennial of The Battle of Lake Erie where Commodore Perry outmaneuvered and out-gunned an opponent with superior numbers, forever reminding us that you “Don’t Give Up The Ship”, ever.

So you see this 4th of July as we enjoy the time off and celebrate our Nation’s Birth, doing it with a boat would only be the historically correct thing to do. Enjoy!

Special Notice: Due to safety factors such as proximity to fuel, fireworks of any kind are strictly prohibited at Romp’s.

IMG_20140626_202010_108
